Koh Samui - Building in Thailand
As with our teaching project on Koh Samui, the school development work has been designed to help schools that struggle to operate on a day to day basis. With very little income to these government run schools it's not only the education curriculum that suffers, the bricks and mortar suffer too. Our aim with the building project is simple, to return these once proud schools to their former glory through the hard work of volunteers like you. While helping with building projects at the school, you may also have the opportunity to get involved with various projects in the community as well!
Construction in Peru
Are you handy with a hammer? Skilled with a screwdriver? A dab hand at painting? Then sign up to help build a better future for our Peruvian friends. At our construction projects, volunteers assist with construction and/or renovation - usually at a childcare project. Tasks on the construction program may include: renovation, labouring, painting, decorating, and carpentry. Volunteers will assist with cement mixing, sand sifting, cutting wood, and transporting building materials. The building projects are to help the community improve their schools and community centres. Be prepared to be patient and flexible, and to leave a tangible legacy of your efforts.
Construction in Costa Rica
Are you handy with a hammer? Skilled with a screwdriver? A dab hand at painting? Then sign up to help build a better future for our Costa Rican friends. Volunteers in our construction program will assist in projects based in and around San Jose. You will be helping local tradesmen and other volunteers create a tangible legacy of your time spent volunteering. It may be a renovation or a completely new build but whatever project you work on, your time and efforts will be greatly appreciated. So get ready to roll up your sleeves, get dirty and help the locals build for their future!
Chiang Rai Hill Tribes - Building and Community Development in Thailand
The hill tribe communities supported by our volunteers live in very basic conditions. Houses are generally constructed from materials that have been found and nailed together. Running water and electricity is often a luxury available only to those who may have a regular income. Community centres, if any, are very often unsafe and crumbling through lack of funding to redevelop and refurbish.
