Volunteers feedback !

" I really enjoyed my stay at SHAC home stay. The rooms were very clean and the wifi is very good. Aly the manager is always there to help you and make sure your stay is a great one by catering for all your needs. I found the kitchen really useful and a great way to meet fellow volunteers and guests. I will definitely be back! Thank SHAC "

" What a great place to stay. The rooms are comfortable and clean and the knowledge that the money for each night is going to help others is a true bonus. Having had a break down upon arrival of how our contribution for the rooms is contributed and used to help is lovely to hear. It is a nice way for volunteers to make a contribution financially as SHAC's does not charge for volunteering, as well as being cheap and affordable for the backpacker budget, and a perfect location for any future volunteers ".

Aly (Director & Founder of SHAC) with the children & and SHAC staff.

Today was a very special day for SHAC - we celebrated our 2-year anniversary. Thank you so much to the RAFFLES HOTEL for a very big and tasty birthday cake, plus lots of very good food for our students, staff, and teachers. SHAC is completely dependent on charity, with over 230 kids. We receive no support from the Government but SHAC is doing very well and we're always smiling. Thank you so much to all our volunteer teachers - generous people who love and support the SHAC students, school, teachers and staff by investing their own precious time in teaching, and who donate resources to our school. On behalf of SHAC ... THANK YOU SO MUCH !!

We wish you good luck, good health and hope all your dreams will come true.

You are always in our (Smiling) Hearts !! We love you :)


Director of SHAC
