Challenge is an awesome scheme and is well worth getting involved with.

Lee Fraser (Scotland)

Cameroon is the experience of a lifetime, this is real Africa, forget what you might expect it to be like, or what you think might happen, because in reality to know it, you have to live it yourself.

Andrew Ormsby (England)

I would recommend going out to Cameroon with Challenge if you want to experience something fairly unique and if you not only want to make a difference, but if you want to see the difference that you make too.

Claire McHaffie (Scotland)

I have had a great time during my stay in Limbe. Playing football with the boys of AVFAL was a great experience. Overall I am really thankful for this great experience!

Jireel Verhage (Netherlands)

From the start of the process the charity were amazingly helpful, right from initially securing my place on the placement, all the way up to last minute schedule changes in my flight - there was constant contact between myself and the project coordinator, Nathan.

Johnny Cross (Scotland)

People in Cameroon are extremely friendly, the organization impeccable, accommodation of good standard, Nathan and the volunteers allow you great freedom and support, a good time is guaranteed.

Mario Molino (Italy)

The local culture in Limbe is very relaxed and welcoming. I had no trouble adjusting to the lifestyle and I always felt safe Limbe. During my stay I met so many wonderful people, both volunteers and locals. I still frequently long for the simpler life and the friendly faces I left behind in Limbe.

A life changing experience and one that I would recommend to anybody!
