What to expect

Description: volunteer building in coastal Ecuador

Now, we have been working in the construction of a library for the school, however, we still need to finish this work that will be of big benefit for the children at the school, and also, it is necessary to work in the construction of additional classrooms for the children to continue studying. You can particapte in this project no matter what age you are or what skills you have. Volunteers in this project do not necessarily have to have special construction background. It is only important to be physically fit and you should be willing to work hard and make your hands dirty. Das besondere an diesem Projekt ist, dass Sie keine besonderen Vorkenntnisse zum Hausbau benötigen, sondern lediglich körperlich fit sein sollten und gern im Team tätig sind.
