Guatemala House Building Volunteers
from £709 GBP
You can live and breathe the Latin American lifestyle, staying with a local family in Antigua and setting off each day to get really hands-on with building work. No matter what your level of experience you can help to make a huge difference to families living in homes with sugar cane and cardboard walls.
You’ll be working alongside local families, often the family you are making the house for, building and rebuilding houses, working on making them safer and stronger. This project gives you a fantastic opportunity to see your work through from start to finish as each house takes around 6 days to complete. Kicking off with digging footings and laying foundations, the spending around 3 days on the fabric of the building and a couple of days finishing your masterpiece before you hand over the keys to a very happy family!
Daily work usually finishes in the late afternoon so you'll have the evenings to yourself to relax or explore the sights of Antigua.
