Working with HYCF was an enriching experience. The team is eager to learn from volunteers and ready to do activities! The organization was founded this year and is still in its beginnings. They have to improve a lot, but step by step, they can be successful. They are doing truly an excellent job in supporting the rural area in Karonga. The accommodation the host provided for me was by far the best one I have had during the past. The family’s hospitality is exceptional. Good Luck!
