If you’re looking for a chance to get your hands dirty volunteering to help underprivileged communities with construction projects, look no further! Aiming to improve the quality of life for under-privileged citizens in and around Udaipur, this construction work improves the living conditions of the poverty-stricken people within the area.
On this project, the main focus is carrying out work at the hearing impaired school which is allocated to the poor members of the community in the city of Udaipur. However, there is a possibility that you will work at other locations where you could provide assistance with development construction. Through this work you will gain invaluable experience of the construction industry and cultural knowledge of the Indian people.
Despite ongoing efforts in construction at the school, there is plenty left to complete from the renovation of pathways, toilets and walls to decorating the walls. For this part of the work, participants with artistic skills will be encouraged to decorate the walls with images and sketches from their own countries and cultures. This is a reflection of the long standing working relationship developed by participants as they have worked there over the past years.
Other construction projects you may be involved in could include the renovation and building of houses and sanitation facilities at the local village or local hospitals. Your assignment to these projects is completely dependent on the needs at any particular time and the skills you could offer!
Your week will begin with a meeting with the coordinator. During this, you will discuss the role you will be taking on during your stay at the project. It is most likely that your focus will be on light construction work in the school environment. This could include making tables and chairs, painting the school buildings, constructing and renovating the playground, making pathways, building toilets, repairing the school wall and helping to build new classrooms. There is a chance that you will be assigned to carry out construction and renovation work in other places in the local area as the need arises.
