IVHQ’s affordable Construction and Renovation volunteer abroad projects enable international volunteers to work alongside local people to support building new structures for community use, renovating existing community buildings, and improving local infrastructure.
Our construction and building volunteer projects are often undertaken to support the developmental goals of schools, orphanages, community centers and recreational facilities where IVHQ volunteers work. The renovation or construction volunteer work will vary depending on your location, the unique community needs, and the different stages of construction work.
You can choose to volunteer for durations ranging from 1 week to 24 weeks and if you are supporting longer-term building projects, you will have the opportunity to continue the construction work of previous volunteers.
You do not require any previous experience or qualifications to participate on one of IVHQ’s Construction and Renovation projects, as you will be supported and lead by a skilled member of the local team. A strong work ethic and an enthusiasm for a challenge are the key requirements for these projects, which offer a rewarding opportunity for volunteers who like to see the physical results of their hard work.
