Construction

Volunteer on sustainable construction projects around the world and help lay the foundations that will set up basic infrastructure in developing communities for years to come. Contributing to building or renovation work is a great way to see the direct impact you will have on the country, while having the unique opportunity of experiencing life inside these communities.

 

Get your hands dirty in exciting and exotic locations such as Fiji, South Africa, Thailand, Costa Rica, the Seychelles and more!

 

  • Help build classrooms and jungle gyms for the local children,
  • Improve sanitation
  • Take part in basic repairs and renovation, or
  • Give an old building a fresh coat of paint.

 

Our volunteers play a key part in contributing towards our construction project’s goals. GVI aims to address basic human needs and protect those most at risk. We work to build or improve key infrastructure, and thereby, improve the communities’ access to healthcare, education and children’s development.
