Our project helps to relieve the local communities from some of the stress and pressure that they are living under. On this program, the participants will work under a local coordinator who provides guidance and training alongside local families. The project involves hard physical and manual labor, as you will be laying bricks, doing carpentry, painting, laying tiles, and landscaping/gardening. You can expect to be working around 6 hours a day.

Through participating in this social project, you will make a difference to the local community by supporting local families and children and providing them with better living conditions. The other side of this project involves a more artistic and relaxed environment where participants are in charge of renovating and creating drawings, and painting in several kindergartens and primary schools around Suva and Narere. This activity is fun and we support your creativity during the process.
