Samraong – Cambodia
€ 280 Per Week
The main construction site for this project is located in a local school which is allocated to the poor, however, you can also expect to help elsewhere, in areas where construction assistance is needed. You can gain valuable experience, as well as have a great cultural exchange with the local Cambodian people! Get your hands dirty, as you help underdeveloped communities in Cambodia with some construction and renovation work!
On this project, you will get your hands dirty with construction assignments. Our main construction focus is working at our own school, which has been allocated as an educational resource for the children of poor villagers.
This school was built with the support and sweat equity of helpers like yourself, along with skilled local tradesmen. Today, more than three hundred children attend classes here daily.
Despite previous efforts, the work here is far from done and we continue to construct new buildings, pathways, toilets, walls, drainage systems for rain run-off, etc. to meet the needs of all those using the facility.
Those with artistic talent can help decorate the walls by creating murals and paintings of their home countries and cultures. We have a feeling that this will be a nice way of reflecting the good, hard work that has been done by people like yourself over previous years.
Other construction efforts might be carried out in the local village (renovating and building houses and sanitation facilities) or working on construction projects at the local hospital – this very much depends on the needs of the particular time. So what you can expect from your efforts is to be directing and implementing your construction skills wherever they are needed most!
Activities focus on light construction work and you will be expected to help paint the school buildings, make tables & chairs, construct and renovate the playground, make pathways, build toilets, repair the school walls and help build new classrooms. You can look forward to working out in the local community if construction and renovation jobs arise.
This schedule can be changed and/or amended depending on weather conditions, local conditions and unforeseen circumstances.
