Volunteer Build a House

7 day(s) - 6 night(s), building a House for the poor family

Our goal is to raise $4,900 dollars to build a CBAVC house project. Once we raise funds for the materials of house, water well and toilet facilities that we can build a house for rural family in the village.

No building experience is needed. Our local architects and volunteer coordinators look after you every step of the way. You don’t need to do anything that you are not comfortable with.

Volunteers do the actual house building with the guidance of professional construction workers. You will measure, chisel and hammer, saw the wood, nail the wall and floorboards down and make the stairs, windows and doors.

It is a great experience for a group of friends, school group wanting to learn, or a family looking for a holiday that will make a difference.
