Mr Daudi Kingalata is super welcoming, very supportive and very positive. He is flexible and easy to work with. He will go out of his way to make you feel welcome and at home. Daudi is an entrepreneur with a big heart and strong core values around helping people. His college supports the tuition for 3 – 4 poor students. I have also watched him provide very generous support of the small Anglican church’s building fund in his small home village.
We have become good friends over the month that I have spent volunteering to teach conversational English at the Turnbull Tech Training College.

Mr. Neil is a good friend to everyone therefore I liked him from my heart the way he was and taking many things seriously about developing Turnbulltech vocational Training College. Further more he did a great work for helping students in groups to learn English language fluently, he developed a new idea of starting a company which is "Turnbull Tech Computer Repairs " and also he was a good advisor of having the strong strategies in both projects every year.
But also he provided to us his good thoughts on how we can expand clothing and textile program ( Sewing machines ) and having like "Turnbull Tech Manufacturing" then one day we can find the market of it abroad of my country including his country ( Canada )He know me very well that I want to be a big business man and helping my community effectively.

I found Turnbull College when I researched my route from Lusaka (Zambia) to Moshi (Tanzania). The project is right halfway through the Iringa region. Everything was a big surprise for me: the small town, the community, the project and especially Daudi the host.
Daudi has a big heart, he was super careful and considerate to the point of becoming a good friend. He is responsible for the project and works very responsibly. If you can, don't go through the region without visiting this project first. I really recommend.

We are appreciate more his great work he has done about our project in Iringa. Thank you Tayke for coming at our college, please welcome again next time although we still in contacting each other.

Daudi is an excellent host! Nice and talkative. It was my first time in Africa and he really took care of me. He was always caring about my safety and wanting me to enjoy the Tanzanian life. He wanted me to be happy and to enjoy every time. I felt really welcome!
About the volunteer activity, Daudi is really open to let you do whatever you want for help. He let me to be free to choose.
I started teaching Spanish language, but after a week, the student had holidays. So after that, I helped them with some administration stuff, what I really enjoyed to do.
Thank you! And see you next time!😃

This was truly a one-of-a-kind experience. I never thought that I could potentially make such a big impact on the lives of the students and locals in Iringa. The eight weeks that I spent volunteering in Tanzania has changed my life for the better.
Daudi (the host) has such an amazing heart for people, volunteers, students, and all of mankind. he always goes out of his way to ensure that his volunteers are safe and supported.
The students at turnbull are welcoming, kind, and such a pleasure to teach and learn from.
Asante sana kaka kwa uzoefu wa ajabu kama huu. Nitaipenda Tanzania daima
