Join us in Ghana and help construct better-quality homes and classrooms for children and their families. Learn how to make bricks from mud and water, before building walls, plastering and painting.

You will join a team of Dream Africa Care Foundation volunteers and local people constructing and renovating simple buildings in the local communities.

you will also help with landscaping the surrounding area, painting local schools, and renovating classrooms. In the past, volunteers built schools, library, orphanages and hospitals for rural communities.

In many areas of Ghana, thousands of families live in inadequate accommodation and children attend school in crumbling buildings. Our construction project allows them to move to new, better quality homes and for the children to receive an education in secure, new classrooms.

The buildings are usually made from mud bricks that are produced by using a press, some mud and water, and then left to harden in the sun. Volunteers help in this process and also with building walls, plastering, and painting. Each building takes an average of one month to construct but if you and friends are staying for two weeks you can still be of great help to this project.

This is a great opportunity to get involved in a rural project and become an integral part of the local community.

Building work takes place early in the morning and late in the afternoon to avoid the hot midday sun, so you'll have plenty of time to get involved in Ghanaian life. Many volunteers immerse themselves in the local community by helping around the kindergarten class or playing soccer with some of the school children once the building work has finished for the day.

An ideal project for short term volunteers, no skills are required and you are able to make a significant contribution even you are only staying one week.

Volunteers should bring gloves, flashlight, and light weight scarf for sun protection or hat, insect repellent, working boots and water bottle. Please also note, projects and volunteer roles will vary from community to community.

This project focuses on the construction and renovation of orphanages, clinics, community centers, toilet facilities, libraries and building of classrooms (schools), roads and drainage system and digging of wells. Volunteers also have the opportunity to meet chiefs and community elders, and learn about the various cultures of the different communities through drumming, music and dance.

Volunteers work closely with the local people and Dream Africa Care Foundation Ghana staff on tasks which include painting, brick laying, plastering, digging, block shaping, carpentry, steel bending, mortar mixing, etc. If you’re a keen outdoors person with a good level of fitness, this will be a perfect project for you. The Construction and Renovation project offers volunteers the special opportunity to work alongside local people to help improve the infrastructure in small, rural communities.

Tagesablauf

Helping mix concrete, painting, brick laying, plastering, digging, block shaping, carpentry, steel bending, mortar mixing, etc. You will work from 9am to 2pm in the afternoon.
