If you've ever wanted to volunteer abroad but were unsure of what kind of projects you could take part in, you may be interested in helping to build in local communities.
Volunteering abroad enables you to see some of the most beautiful places in the world, while being able to give back and provide support to people who need it most.
Not only will you be able to live overseas for a few weeks and immerse yourself in a different culture, but you can feel the reward of helping others.
There are a number of different ways you can do voluntary work while travelling and becoming a building volunteer is one of the most useful.
Help construct schools for children to learn in or put together houses to help develop communities – whatever you do your efforts will be most appreciated.
All about becoming a building volunteer
Whether you want to help build homes for families in Costa Rica or establish schools for kids in Nepal, we have something for you at i-to-i.
There are a number of different projects you can take part in, starting from one week and lasting up to 12 weeks if you want to get your hands dirty and help out for a length of time.
With this wide selection of building programmes, you're likely to find one that suits you and enables you to fulfil your travelling ambitions at the same time.
If you've always dreamed of heading to Africa, why not get involved with developing living areas for poor communities in Kenya?
Or, if you want to offer assistance to families that have been affected by natural disasters, you may wish to visit Vietnam and help locals protect their homes against monsoons.
You'll find plenty to choose from and you don't need to be proficient with construction work. Anyone can help build homes and schools in these communities if they are able to work hard and have a passion for assisting others.
Have a unique travelling experience by volunteering abroad
Signing up for voluntary work abroad not only means that you can help those less fortunate to get back on their feet, but it also gives you a rewarding and valuable travelling experience.
By providing assistance to others, you'll be able to come face to face with difficulties and challenges some communities have to contend with every day.
But you'll also be able to forge friendships with locals and get to know more about other cultures by working with them and living in close quarters. This is a unique opportunity to be a part of different societies.
Working abroad gives you the chance to see some of the most beautiful sights, whether you choose to stay in the same country for your trip or use it as a starting point to explore the rest of the world.
Indeed, we offer a range of add-ons should you wish to combine your voluntary experience with other opportunities.
So, if you're between 18 and 80 and interested in getting involved in an international voluntary project, why not join the thousands of volunteers who have taken part in i-to-i schemes since 1994?
All our packages are ATOL protected, so you can be confident that your trip will be covered and i-to-i is a member of ABTA – The Travel Association for added peace of mind.
