AVOID PDS! He only cares for the fee. School was closed in August. No project, he spoke suahili all the time, very impolite. Food needs were not met, dinner was a cucumber and bread.
I decided to leave after 1 week, even if I paid 1 month. He answered “ I won’t let you go”, It began a nightmare, He threatened to report me to immigration because I had a volunteer visa, so I was under his responsibility? He called the local leader and started making false accusations in order to make me leave the country. I had to request assistance from my embassy.
HE NEVER GAVE ME MY MONEY BACK!
