Improve the living standards of the Monze villagers through repair and renovation work in the local community. On the construction effort project, you will be working in light construction as well as repairs and renovation on the local community’s most important buildings.
Many of the local villagers need help to improve the living standard of their homes, due to financial burdens and stresses it is common for living quarters to become run down and remain in poor condition for long periods of time. This is where you come in! On this project, we are always scouting for homes, as well as schools, temples, clinics and other important buildings that urgently need work done on them.
While a part of this project you will be actively engaging with the local community and working to improve the living standards of the villagers. We work to provide the materials needed for renovation and repair, combined with labour from the project participants we are able to help the community in a tangible and useful way and engaging with the members of the village at the same time.
Your assigned tasks will vary depending on the local conditions as well as what is needed at the time. Typical tasks include housing renovation work such as light construction and painting, or perhaps building walls or repairing chairs and tables. The project coordinator will strive to find the most suitable work for you at the time, and prioritise what is most urgent. You can expect to be spending 4 to 5 five hours a day working.
Throughout this project, you will be working to support the local community and raise the standard of living. This means that the placements vary dramatically depending on the most urgent needs in the village. The coordinator will meet with you to work out what projects best fit your skills, as well as looking at what is most urgent at your time of arrival.
You will be working between 4-5 hours during the day on weekdays (Monday to Friday), taking a break for lunch and having free time to relax after dinner.
The kind of work you might be doing could include painting, renovating, light construction and repair work, so it’s important that you are in good enough health that you can complete such tasks.
