Construction

Construction projects are truly important in many areas of Africa. 

These projects include building of classrooms, libraries, youth centers, waterworks and wells, toilet facilities and sports and recreation centers as well as renovation work on existing buildings. Volunteers are needed to help with fixing the windows, doors, plumbing, electricals, concreting the floor, fixing the furniture in the classrooms, painting, artwork and landscaping.  Such projects assist those forced to sleep on the streets; help to get clean water to drought-stricken communities; address overcrowding and other hindrances to education, and prevent sanitation concerns from spreading disease.

Our programme offers architects and non-architects alike a chance to strengthen their skill set and expand their professional network.Together with donors and volunteers, we make a great impact on the lives of the disadvantaged and transform communities. Volunteers work and live with the people in the community and they quickly get immersed in the culture. The programme also provides an opportunity for the donors to see the empirical evidence of their donations.

Aside from physical activities to aid in constructions, volunteers may be asked assist in directing contractors, supervise other employees on site, assist in buying and transporting building materials to site and project management.

There are a number of specialized projects throughout West Africa that will feature from time to time.  Be sure to check these out if you'd like the specific placement.
