Description

Program Description

There are many families in Thailand that live under poor housing conditions and many of its local community areas and facilities such as temples, hospitals and schools still need a lot of improvement.

To address this concern, this program aims at participants to help improve the living standards of these local people in need by providing support in much-needed construction and renovation work by creating proper sanitation facilities, making housing safer places to live and ensuring communities have greater authority over their own development initiatives.

Participants will be asked to engage in tasks ranging from light work such as cleaning the area, mixing cement and painting to harder tasks such as building up the wall (plastering) and repairing roofing. Participants will be instructed and supervised closely by our coordinator who has ample experience in construction work to make sure that all the processes are safe for them and the housing conditions are also safe for the local people to live.

You will also be continuing the ongoing construction and renovation projects and or join new projects happening to help the local community.

After breakfast, you will head off to the construction project; this will mainly be at local people’s houses and local community facilities. There you will be briefed on your tasks by our coordinator about the day’s project. Expect to do construction and renovation work at the project location for 4-5 hours per day with a lunch break in between. Lunch can be at our accommodation or near the project site.

In addition, during the construction activities, please be careful and mindful when using construction equipment and material, ask assistance from your local coordinators for heavy  tasks  and of course to enjoy and make the most of your stay and make memorable learning experiences.

Finally, working with locals to achieve a common goal is enjoyable, and you will learn a lot about Thai’s and their dedication to keeping the community and the environment clean, with your help of course!
