This place is just amazing! William is such an incredible person with the best intentions for everyone. I stayed there for 3 weeks with my girlfriend and another volunteer (Peter). William were super positiv to all our suggestions for how we could help the school. We ended up making a video and a fundraiser. We also built a playground for the kids which included a football field, volleyball field and a basketball court. You will feel super welcomed by the kids, the teachers and everyone around in the village. Highly recommended!

I had an incredible experience with the school! William and his family are so kind, and the social impact of the school and the other programs that William is involved in is inspiring. If you want to truly make a difference while learning about local culture, this is the place to volunteer. I'll never forget my time with them.

This trip was very special to me. It really teached me so many things, I got a new perspective of life. William is an amazing man who does so much for his community. The school is amazing, with the most grateful and sweet children. The village that I lived in was very welcoming. Thanks to William and his beautiful family that made me feel at home from the first day. I want to come back. Asante sana!

It was one of the best decisions I had ever made. I had an amazing time in Kisesa. William and his family made me fell like I was home. The school is such a beautiful project. The kids are so adorable and the teachers are always willing to learn and also very friendly. I wish I could be Back one day. I will miss this a lot. Asante sana.

I had an incredible time at William's place! My girlfriend and I spent three weeks there, and it was a fantastic experience. The family was always eager to help and provide tips whenever we needed assistance. The safari that William offers is highly recommended. We went on a one-day trip and witnessed some incredible sights. I can't say enough good things about this place. William is a dedicated individual who goes above and beyond to support and educate the children. He's a genuinely lovely guy! 😊
