During my travels back to Africa, I met my first host Daudi at Turnbull Tech Training College. The students were eager to learn foreign languages and improve their knowledge of computers. The accommodation provided by Mr. Daudi was exceptional. We created a lot of footage for his Social Media and made an easy to maintain website. On weekends I could take part in activities such as hiking around Iringa. It was an enormous enrichment for me to learn about African life and how things are done—best wishes for the future.

Being with Claudio/Caldi from September 2020 until October 2020 was a wonderful time for us at TurnbullTech Training College. We have gained many things from him, including developing website, speaking a bit German language, and improving the English language. He was very hardworking from the day he arrived here, and we worked in excellent cooperation.
Before, we did not have a website, but after the arrival of Caldi in Iringa at TurnbullTech, he helped us create the website and we learned how to maintain it by ourselves. We have an excellent website where you can access us online wherever you are in the World. So as I am Daudi, I thank him very much. I also thank the Worldpackers for showing us generous support. I felt pleased staying with Caldi because of his heart and great love.
Sure as Director of Turnbulltech training college I value very much his great support which has shown Caldi for my training college, I and my staffs generally we are welcoming him again for next time.
God bless Caldi/Claudio.

Coming to Iringa was the best decision I could've made. Daudi was extremely kind and made sure I was comfortable and had everything I needed. Accommodation was excellent, clean and quiet. Students were eager to learn and worked hard both in and outside class, learning fast, although I was teaching them two different foreign languages that were completely new to them (Spanish and Chinese). Simple vocabulary, structures, writing, but they acquired all naturally. Daudi has become a close friend. I'll miss him, the students, and all the people in Iringa very much. I'm sure I will come back!
