I truly enjoy the time at the organization. Osward, his family, and the staffs and students in school are nice to me. All of them are hospitable, as well as they are willing to share their culture with me and learn mine. The people, atmosphere, and food make me feel at home. I only spent two weeks here, but if my flight could be changed, I was willing to stay an extra one to two months. It is recommended to arrange the stay for months for a more complete experience, and a deeper exploration of the place and local culture. Sincerely recommend the organization to everyone.

I had a wonderful time at the organization, Osward and his family made me feel welcomed and at home. I was surrounded by nature and I had a lot of fun with the kids from both the organization and the school. Everyone there is kind, sociable and cheerful. I totally recommend this experience to everyone!

Thank you for staying with us the children from the Orphanage and primary school they were very happy for your help and support.



I visited the the organization to create content for their Social media platforms. I had a pleasant stay at the owner's home, and the hospitality was overwhelming. The meals cooked were great, and any concern I had, they took the organization of it. They are new on worldpackers, and we also created a welcoming website to get in touch with more volunteers.
