This essential construction program was created to help impoverished families into safe and sanitary homes. 

Housing is a fundamental human right under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and everyone should have a safe, secure, and habitable home. Unfortunately, in Costa Rica, many people are impoverished and do not have adequate housing. Volunteers on this program with work with project staff and locals on every aspect of the building process, helping wherever it is needed. 

Volunteers play a huge labor role, ensuring that there is enough people power to ensure the building work can be completed. Without unpaid volunteers, providing these homes to marginalised families would be out of reach. 

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide low-cost, quality housing to impoverished families 
  • Provide safe, healthy homes to enable families to live happier, healthier lives
  • Improve the prospects of some of Costa Rica’s most impoverished people, and help them to break the poverty cycle
  • Expose volunteers and locals to new cultures

Start Dates

This project is available year-round and programs typically start every 1st and 3rd SUNDAY of each month. Volunteers can choose to participate for periods ranging from 2 weeks to 12 weeks. Longer stays can be arranged directly with the local team, but will be subject to availability and individual visa conditions. Spaces on this project are limited and therefore subject to availability. Early booking is recommended.


Love Volunteers welcomes all those 18 years and over who wish to have a tangible and lasting impact on the lives of families and communities facing extreme poverty in Costa Rica. This 'hands-on' project is ideally suited to those volunteers with some knowledge and experience in construction or any of the building trades, however the project is open to all and does not require participants to have specific education, qualifications or experience, as you will be shown everything you need to know by your local project leader. Importantly though, all applicants must first and foremost have a genuine willingness to help, be fit and active, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!
