Under this program, you will assist the men in Aufaga in their construction efforts. You will work side by side with them and get instructions and guidance on how to work with them. You do not need an additional skill set to take part in project. But basic knowledge in terms of skills related to home repairs, construction work or general DIY activities would be a plus point. In particular, the project assists in the construction of a fale (an open Samoan community house) to support the women entrepreneurs to build a secure and a sustainable future so that they can achieve success through their weaving skills.
