Volunteers helping to build new accommodation for the community in Madagascar

Build Up Communities

Many communities lack proper infrastructure which affects the health and wellbeing of individuals. You can help make a tangible contribution through hands-on construction work. Get your hands dirty and join us to improve the lives of communities abroad.

As a volunteer, you can assist with the following:

  • Provide sanitation facilities to those who need it
  • Rebuild classrooms destroyed in the Nepal earthquakes
  • Paint and design educational murals for schools and care centres

Last year, our volunteers built, renovated and improved the learning environment for over 7,400 students. They also provided over 3,000 community members with access to clean water.
