As a construction volunteer with us, you can expect your tasks to be focussed on one of our construction projects. We are constantly getting funds for our local community to run a number of projects.

Are you experienced in construction and would you like a break from the daily beat? Why not come to our sunny island in the tropical Maldives and put your skills to good use as a volunteer in one of our construction projects whilst enjoying endless white beaches in the company of a team of dedicated volunteers? Use your construction skills to provide local islands with easier access to basic services and needs, helping these small islands develop the self sufficiency they desperately need. This in turn encourages the preservation of their way of life for future generations!



There are a number of construction companies on our island and we strive to do projects in collaboration with them. This secures that the funds we are granted are channelled into our community in more ways than just through the construction itself. Hence, you should expect to work closely with local tradespeople as well as other relevant members of our community, such as council representatives or people directly involved in the construction project. This is a great chance to get involved in cross-cultural community work!

As mentioned, we have many and varied projects that all require their own effort in terms of planning, development and field work. Examples of former projects are; our community park, our office building, and renovations in our marine conservation buildings.

As a volunteer coming from another country your work methods and knowledge of construction might differ from our local tradespeople. We encourage our construction volunteers to share their knowledge with the local construction workers in order to improve their skills, and secure sustainable construction business’ on our island! Volunteering with this project will offer you fantastic experience in what it is like working in construction in the Maldives. You will also be given the opportunity to assist in a range of different projects, such as marine conservation, eco waste management, various sports programmes as well as great social activities with the other volunteers and locals. Don’t miss out!
