Many families in Costa Rica live in sub-standard housing without adequate sanitation or safe weather protection. The project works to provide safe, secure homes for underprivileged locals as well as a stable environment for the children.
You will be getting hands on at the project Monday to Friday between 8am and 4pm, getting involved in all aspects of the building such as digging trenches, preparing the foundations, helping to put on roofs and lay floors, mixing cement and concrete and building septic tanks.
As the projects are ongoing you may not necessarily see a house finished during your time here but you can rest assured that you have made a vital contribution to what will be a life-changing event for the family you are building the house for.
