You will partake in the Community Construction program to improve the living standards of local people in need. In this area of Thailand, there are still many families living under very poor housing circumstances and without basic sanitation facilities. Within this program the local village head has selected local families who are in need of construction support regarding their current living standards.

It is at these houses where the team will undertake construction and renovation efforts such as:

  • Creating proper sanitation facilities
  • Repairing roofing
  • Painting
  • Other construction and renovation needed to make these houses a safe place to live

The Community Construction project can also take place at local facilities such as:

  • Temples
  • Hospitals
  • Schools
  • Other community areas that require our community construction team’s assistance

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.
