Mercy was very involved in my stay as a host, I didn't get to meet with the kids as much as I wanted but it was an overall engaging experience

If you are thinking about really helping children and living as a local do not hesitate, here is your option!! At Sama you really can help children at school and give them your love. There is so much to improve there, all kind of help is more than welcome. Muga's family who handle the school is just amazing and so dedicated to this children. Most of them are orphans so they really work hard to protect them and provide them a better life. It's good to rise some money to cook a proper meal for the children, or to improve materials for school. All these people made from me a better person! Asante

I really loved my volunteering experience in this school!! They are doing a great job with these children in need offering all they have. They really welcomed me as a family and I very easily became part of their team. I really wish going back there soon. I totally recommend it to other volunteers that are wishing to offer to these kids.
