Painting Signs for a School in Jaipur: Construction Volunteer Experience in India

Jakob and Aiden from Norway went to India as construction volunteers, in order to paint signs for a school in Jaipur. They say, they enjoy their stay, it is very hot and they wanted to explore life in India. Both were painting signs for the school, also with the contact information to bring around the word about the school. In the end, they were surprised, that India was much more developed than they had thought before. And last but no least, they young men from Norway made many friends!

Peru Construction Volunteer Program

Take part in the Peru Construction Volunteer Program and help to build family homes, schools or provide water supply.

According the number of volunteers and the needs of the community we work in schools, orphanages, family homes, and medical and community centres to improve the living conditions of the people living in underprivileged areas. We work alongside the community and families to help to promote social change and impact by working together. There are no words to describe the satisfaction of seeing the completion of a renovation project, and the effect that it has on the local people. This project is unique and rewarding as it offers volunteers the chance to see their immediate impact in the community in which they work.
