On this project, you will get your hands dirty with construction assignments. Our main focus when constructing is working at our own school allocated to the poor.

This school was built with the help of helpers like yourself, along with local tradesman. Today, over three hundred children attend it daily.

Despite previous efforts, the work here is far from done and we continue to construct pathways, toilets, walls, etc.

Those with an artistic talent can help decorate the walls by creating murals and paintings of their home countries and cultures. We have a feeling that this will be a nice way of reflecting the good, hard work that has been done by people like yourself over previous  years.

Other construction efforts might be carried out in the local village (renovating and building houses and sanitation facilities) or working on construction projects at the local hospital – this very much depends on the needs of the particular time and so you can expect to be using your construction skills wherever it is most needed!

Activities focus on light construction work and you will be expected to help paint the school buildings, make tables & chairs, construct and renovate the playground, make pathways, build toilets, repair the school walls and help build new classrooms. You can look forward to working out in the local community if construction and renovation jobs arise.
