Thumbs up!

The best thing for me was to see how happy the kids in the schools and créches are when they see us. It gave me the feeling that I made their day better even when it often was quite exhausting. At the end of the day I made them smile and that is what counts.

Working with the little ones

My absolute favorite part of the Izizwe projects was teaching the little ones to brush their teeth. Teaching them the ABC, colors and basic English was also loads of fun. Seeing the great work that Izizwe does in the township is amazing

Serving the children

I really enjoyed the fact that I was able to serve so many children in many different ways. Every day I was amazed to see the joy in the faces of the kids when you walk in the classroom. It was a great time and I loved the work and especially the leadership team of Izizwe

Heart-warming & a sense of fulfilment - we can change the world

It is very hard to pick the best experience. Seeing the smiling faces & the excitement on the children's faces when we arrived at their creches was great for me. I have never seen such loving happy people in my life and it was so heart-warming especially that they were so happy and many of them had nothing.

A lot of fun with friends and penguins

The best experience for me was meeting all the new people and finding amazing new friends. It was the most fun just spending time with them, no matter if it was while going on adventures like hikes, or if we were just talking and playing games in the evenings!
The bungee Jump I got to do was also a very awesome and intese experience, that I liked a lot!
And of course getting to work with the penguins was very cool too! It is so amazing that you really get to help and can see the difference you're making!
