Sawil Pax Upendo Academy Children's Centre serves less fortunate rural children in Tanzania, East Africa. We need volunteers to promote our activities while they are at the centre to let people see what is happening really and influence them to get involved. We don't know much about visual communication and marketing. The power of media is great, the skills of the volunteer in this matter will create a lasting impact to the kids and us.Learn more

My stancy in Sawil Pax Upendo Academy was wonderfull. William and his people treated me as a family member.
Sawil is a very nice project that is growing a lot and its nice to see the hugh effort they do to improve the life ot those 94 children.
I helped them editing videos to promote their work at social networks. I hope more people could come to Mwanza to do the same, this project has to be known arround the world.
Asante Sana, William. See you soon.
I would definitely recommend anyone to volunteering here! You can learn so much from this experience, from the commitment of William and all of the staff, the dedication of the teachers, the daily life in the community, the loving and welcoming family, the adorable kids, and the amazing work they do to empower women and promote leadership. They are always open to suggestions or any kind of help you can bring. The village is a lovely place, very safe and full of nature. Don't hesitate too much, if you have the time I think there is no better way to use it!
A life changing experience, in every possible way. William is so generous and kind and will do all possibles and impossibles to make your trip unforgettable. I couldn't wish for a better experience, even though it is so different from life back home (that's all the fun). The kids from school are so well educated and grateful and spending time with them will make you change your perspectives in life. In the meantime you can explore this amazing country, from beautiful beaches in Zanzibar to an amazing safari in Serengueti National Park. Couldn't wish for a better time here.
It was the best experience in my life. Join at this wonderful project in a marvellous familia. I will give my number and if you want to call me I will be really glad to tell you everything. You will never regret it.
Incredible experience in the project and with the neighboors.
Join.. they need your help.
What can I say about the best trip of my life? I think I'm a Tanzanian now, because I have a new family there! They made me I feel at home since the first day. I miss the kids so much, they're really lovely, always with a smile their face, and this is amazing! A great experience that I will have for all of my life!! William is a great man - the "big man" - with a big heart. We can laugh all the day with him, a very gentle and funny man. I wish I could tell about all the trip here, but I have no space to write. Feel free to contact me on WhatsApp +5541991112002.
We live in a quiet village which is near Mwanza city, the second largest and fast growing city of our country, Tanzania. The area is home of the Sukuma Tribe which is the largest tribe in our country. Volunteering at our project gives our volunteers opportunity to visit this place as much as they can during their free time. Also the volunteer can get a chance to visit Saanane Island, the marvelous Island found in city area. We care for less...About the host
