Volunteer Building Projects

Company : Projects Abroad
Duration: 1 week to 1 Year+
Approx Costs: 1250 to 3000+ £ Pound (UK)

Spend some time overseas helping to build houses, schools and public buildings in developing communities around the world.

Participating on a Building project is a great choice for anyone who is willing to participate in hands-on work in developing areas - whether you're on a gap year, taking a career break, or just wish to volunteer during your holiday!

By volunteering on a 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.

Our building projects accept volunteers year-round, so you can volunteer when it suits you. 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. If you enjoy getting stuck in and seeing physical results of your hard work, a building project will be for you!

We have building projects in a number of destinations contributing to all types of long-term, sustainable projects. Whether you want to experience rural life in Ghana or a big city in South Africa, there are plenty of options to choose from.
