One of the best experiences I've ever had. The kids from the orphanage and the village are just amazing, we played a lot, I prepared some football training for them, which they loved
Astone and his wife Caroline are amazing people, they really care about the kids and the community and do a serious social work, trying to create a sustainable community for them, the kids and the football project.
I had a really good experience about how life is in Simoonga village, local food, culture and their passion. Loved everything and it was hard to say goodbye to the kids, hope I come back any day soo

I spent 4 weeks at the orphanage, and I had a wonderful time. People are very friendly and helpful, you feel at home as soon as you arrive there.
The orphanage is in a small village where everyone knows each other. You experience the rural lifestyle and you see traditional african housing.
I had the opportunity to teach a few lessons in school (at least till they had to close schools due to Covid).
And I did some activities with the kids, teaching english, artwork with paper, playing chess, baking cakes, ...
Theres also the village football team.
I hope to return again soon.
