Building Short-term Specials
Volunteers on the Projects Abroad Building Short-term Special projects contribute to disadvantaged communities who are affected by poverty and natural disasters. These projects are specifically for volunteers aged 16 to 19 and run on fixed dates. You will play an important role in helping to build and repair homes, orphanages, care centres, or other facilities needed by the local community. Our volunteers often perform tasks such as digging foundations, mixing mortar, laying blocks, putting in louver windows, roofing and painting. Anyone can get involved on a Building project, no matter your physical ability. Every volunteer has something they can contribute.
