The Construction and Renovation project supports small village communities in and around Taiping. It aims to build and renovate buildings that are essential for the growth and development of the local community. We generally work on schools, centres, playgrounds and public libraries and support local families by improving living conditions. Our project helps relieve them of some of the stress and pressure that they are living under. Participants work under a local foreman (coordinator) who provides guidance and training alongside local families and other participants. The project involves hard physical and manual labor, as you will be laying bricks, doing carpentry, painting, laying tiles, and landscaping/gardening.

All information about the project and various activities will be provided to you by our local coordinator on arrival. Participants will not be given project preference and are required to join ongoing and existing projects or carry out other construction and renovation work as required by the local community.

Please note this trip may require you to purchase a cultural experience week with it. Click Here to find the relevant cultural experience week based on the country where this trip operates in.
