Construction and Renovation Projects in Uganda from US$270

Company : International Volunteer HQ (IVHQ)
Activities: Building & Construction Projects / Community Volunteer Projects
Duration: 1 week to 1 Year+
Approx Costs: 250 to 2500 $ Dollars (US)

Volunteers are required for the on-going construction and water building projects in the Ugandan communities with whom we work.

Volunteers work in manual labor jobs alongside skilled and unskilled local workers to help with the construction work. Volunteer tasks can include construction, renovating, painting and white-washing, landscaping, digging of trenches, refurbishing sports fields, and brick laying. Volunteers do not need prior building experience, but skilled workers are very welcome.

This is a very "hand on, hands dirty" type of program. Enthusiasm, strong work ethic and a good sense of humor are required. Volunteers on this program also have the option on teaching in local schools as a break from the physical work. The construction and renovation program also attracts a US$5 per day surcharge to cover the cost of materials for this program. 


Example Placement

Nyanama Primary School

Located in Nyanama village in Wakiso District (approximately 20 minutes from the city center of Kampala). This school has a population of 400 children with only 9 teachers. The school is very run down with a strong need for buildings to be refurbished and expansion required for a growing school roll.
