Some of the most important work that needs to be done in developing communities is setting up basic infrastructure. In many countries, the buildings in which locals live and attend school are in a serious state of disrepair.
By volunteering on a Projects Abroad building project you will help to construct better-quality homes and classrooms for children and their families. The work you do will make a lasting difference to the lives of the local people.
You can volunteer on a building project at any age. No previous building experience is required, but you do need a good level of physical fitness and a willingness to work hard.
There are plenty of activities in which you can get involved such as mixing cement, digging foundations, plastering and painting. Volunteers often work in the early mornings and late afternoons to avoid the heat.
We run general building projects in a number of countries, as well as a disaster relief programme in Nepal.
