Joanna: “Tanzania was the best trip in my life. I really enjoyed it: visiting the kids and the families was really eye opening because sometimes I don’t appreciate what I have and I complain a lot, but seeing the little kids’ faces and their smiles was lovely. They have nothing but still they are the happiest kids in the world. Also, I learned that people that have less, give more, they are not selfish like us.”

Jenny: “My time in Tanzania was the best experience I have ever had, it was really different to anything I have witnessed before. I got to see the real Africa for myself, from the towns, people to animals in the wild. The best experience I had was meeting the children and seeing how excited they were to see us. The smiles on their faces and the games we played with them at lunch… I have also learned a lot about leadership and how important it is for people to respect one another as it goes a long way. What made the trip even more enjoyable was the fact that I got to meet new people from all over the world: students, teachers and the leaders in charge Neal, Victoria and Mike.”

Lorenza: “The time I spent in Tanzania was priceless, it‘s an experience I will never forget. When I was there I realised lots of things: I didn’t appreciate much before but now my perspective of life is different. The best moments we had were when we were playing with the kids, how they appreciated that we were with them, giving them attention, and everything we have done for them. We got to meet lots of people of different nationalities - they were all amazing. I’m really thankful for the opportunity I had for this trip because I learned lots of things that will be helpful for the future.

Anastasia: “My experience in Tanzania was once in a life time, it was amazing and eye opening. All the things that we saw completely changed my perspective on life, all the kids and their school life is so different from ours.

Alina: “My experience in Tanzania was a good example of how we always complain about not having small things and how hard is it for us to go to school, but people there are happy for what they have and kids are happy to go to school even though they have to walk a lot everyday. They enjoy the knowledge they receive”.
