Although I was unable to spend as long a time as I originally hoped for with William due to personal reasons, I still had a great and informative experience. William shows a genuine care for his community and works day in day out. He was nothing but kind and welcoming to me and gave me my first Tanzanian experience. Would highly recommend and cannot thank William, Josephine, Joanne, his wonderful children Jenli, Bnega and Jessie and everyone at SHEEO and SBA enough.

I had an incredible experience in the school! To be part of such important projects with impact in those kids life was amazing! Me and my husband stayed in William and Josephine's house and we felt like family. They treated us very good, we talk a lot, Monica is an amazing cooker! Thank you so much William for all the support and to help our experience in Bujora to be so good! We will be definitely back. Asante Sana

Rest assured that you will be taken care of and, more importantly, changed forever. William and his family are kind and welcoming the moment you arrive. His children are precious. You are given the freedom to explore both school properties, alongside various other projects he involves himself in that directly impact the community. I constantly bounced between places and tried my hand at media, teaching, and some outside projects. I felt a part of the team. I made friends and family. You will too! Give it a shot. To anyone reading, please reach out with any questions! I'd love to help.

I really enjoyed my stay at the school and I miss William and his family, all the great teachers and all the adorable children a lot ! At first I needed a bit of time to get into everything, because I was alone for the first 2 weeks and everything was new. The language, the food, the bathroom... Also the tasks are really open so don't expect that William tells you do this, do that, help here. It is more about having own Ideas and figuring out how they can work. After realising this and with 2 other volunteers the fun started and I enjoyed my time there so much and I am sooo grateful !

Volunteering at the school was an amazing life experience. William and his family were really welcoming and it was so nice to have lived with them for two weeks. The room was comfortable and the food was always really good (thank you, Monica ^^). The most different thing for me was the bathroom and showering in a way I was not used to, but you get used to it. William is a person with so good intentions and we could witness this while we were there. He wants to make a difference in those kids' lives and help them create a better future for themselves and others. Assante Sana
