I spent almost a month in the organization. Maybe kyangwali is one of the hardest places to live, but everybody made me feel so good there. I felt part of the team. The kids are really lovely and spent with me all time playing, dancing... This is a place for feel the real Africa life and learn many things from them. I recommend go and meet the school. I will go back.

Volunteering at the organization proved to be an awe-inspiring experience. Given its remote location, I gained an invaluable, firsthand insight into the daily lives of these refugees. Albert and his team were super accommodating, and even went out of their way to make sure I got to the camp safely. The children's boundless energy and joy upon meeting me was heartwarming, as they warmly welcomed me with songs and poems. The work is really flexible, and I even had a chance to attend one of the refugee markets! Without hesitation, I wholeheartedly recommend this project to anyone interested in making a mean

Dear Leo,
It was great having you at our organization, we learnt a lot from your experiences, you copied up with the life in the refugee camp, you played with our kids at school which made them excited, our staff member appreciated your humility for sharing the local meal with them, thank you so much.
