Travel to Africa and give children the chance to learn in a safe classroom, or help build a home for a family in need on a Building Project. You’ll put your energy and time into building houses and schools in communities that desperately need extra support. You can work in Tanzania or Ghana.
You'll do hands-on work everyday. It's a different and rewarding way to challenge yourself. In the process, you'll discover what you're capable of as you give communities the support they need. Our local masons, architects, and builders will guide your work and teach you everything you need to know.
If you’re have experience with building, you’ll also have the chance to learn new methods of building and share your ideas with the local building teams. Building materials and tools at your placement will be more basic than what you’re used to. It will give you a deeper insight into how people overcome challenges like a lack of resources.
Use your building volunteer experience in Africa to enhance your resume, gain hands-on experience, and network with volunteers from across the globe. Our staff will also gladly write a reference letter for your university or job application if needed.
