Thank you very much for this amazing experience. I have gained a valuable insight into Malawian culture and their healthcare system. I genuinely believe I have succeeded in helping a number of local children and adults and I have got a lot of good memories to take home.

The combination of sports and teaching was just perfect. I enjoyed working with the large groups in my first week, the games we played with them and the children were just amazing! I also enjoyed the soccer matches against the village team. It's just a pity that we lost both times.

I would recommend this program to anyone that has some medical training or hopes to learn more about the situation in Africa. I am taking home a greater passion to help others & educate them about leading health conditions. It has also given me a great appreciation for everything I have.

Getting to know the children at the centre was amazing, and made me look forward to getting up and going into the centre to see them they were so cheerful and grateful to you. We took the boys to Tunsa one afternoon which was amesome and great fun, lovely good bye as it was on the day before i go.
Katie Parsons, Tanzania Street Kids Sports Volunteer
For four weeks, I tried my best to help vulnerable people, make a tiny change in their lives and now I am a better man, I see things differently. Also, I have made many wonderful friends from a completely different culture, which was the most fun. From my point of view, every young person at my age must experience a similar adventure to help develop their perception of world.

"The whole experience was so enjoyable. The highlight was definitely just spending time with the children. They were wonderful and full of life, they took nothing for granted and were the happiest kids I have ever met despite having so little. Being immersed in the heart of Ghana’s culture was eye opening and experiencing the African way of life was great!"
Sara Couse, Ghana Teaching & Orphan Care Volunteer
I just wanted to say thank you so so much for providing such an amazing volunteering experience. It's actually really hard to put into words how much I enjoyed my time in Malawi because every time I think of it (which is a lot...) I just want to go back!! The house was amazing, the staff wonderful and the village probably the most welcoming and friendly place I have ever come across.
