During your time on the Building Project in the Philippines, you will work alongside local builders and tradesmen while being supervised by a Projects Abroad Manager. They will teach you all the necessary building skills you need to take part in the project.
The building activities you take part in can include:
Setting up fixed columns
Cutting coco lumber
Plumbing (piping works for sewer and water line)
Volunteering on the Building Project in the Philippines
You can join this project at any time and stay as long as you choose. You must be reasonably fit to participate.
During your time abroad in the Philippines, you will live with a local host family, who will welcome you into their home and teach you about Filipino culture and daily life. In your free time and over weekends, there is plenty to explore, and you can socialize with other Projects Abroad volunteers. You will also be supported by full-time local Projects Abroad staff.
