Construction & Renovation

Ever wrestled with a piece of flat pack furniture? Our Construction & Renovation Project in Tanzania, offers a great opportunity to learn real craftsmanship as you help out in a poor community! Mainly, you’ll be helping in the construction of a school, hospitals, and orphanage centers. However, you may be placed elsewhere, depending on what’s needed when you arrive. Meanwhile, you’ll be getting to know locals and get a feel for Tanzania life and culture as you hammer, dig, drill and paint your way into their hearts!

Volunteers get the special opportunity to work alongside local people to help improve the infrastructure in small rural communities. This project focuses on the construction and renovation of orphanages, clinics, community centers, toilet facilities and school.
