The organization is not what it seems, it is an organisation with great potential but needs a change in the chief. No welcome session when I arrived. No clean sheets. Meals consisted of bread and rice, nothing more. 10€ fee per day per person with no functioning kitchen to use, and only one plug/light per room. Unorganised project. Classes were good because of the volunteers. Other programs were a mess and don't help the community. Sexist behaviour. Staff other than the director was very nice. Tried to expel us because we arrived one day after 00h. Not a good environment in general. Wouldn't recommend. ;(

It was owesome experience!! The community of the organization is very friendly, kind and helpful. The project is really interesting because is for developing talents and the organization, with children, woman and teens. I recommend 100% the experience. You can learn a lot and at the same time you can help the project and the community.

AVOID the organization! 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!
