Volunteer to Build Houses & Schools

Construction & agriculture projects abroad

Volunteer building and agriculture projects are integral to developing communities all over the world, helping to develop farms and agricultural education that are vital to basic survival, and contributing to build fundamental infrastructure such as homes, schools, and community centres, as well as improving sanitation. These projects are a great way to make a real difference to vulnerable lives worldwide.

Volunteering on a building project abroad will usually see you doing important manual labour such as laying foundations, erecting walls and other structures, digging trenches and more. Volunteering on an agriculture project abroad will involve assisting farmers, harvesting crops, looking after livestock, and whatever else is required. Whichever you choose you will have to work hard, but it’ll feel so rewarding at the end of the day, and at the end of your placement you can leave knowing you’ve made a positive change to lives that need it most.

Building and agriculture volunteering placements can be found all over the world, but the most likely places you’ll find them are developing countries in places like Africa, South America, South Asia and South East Asia.
