About the Program

Are you interested in construction volunteer work where you’ll have the opportunity to contribute to the long-term development goals in Likuni Mombasa in Kenya?

The construction and renovation volunteer abroad project in Mombasa Kenya which enable international volunteers to work alongside local school to support building new structures for community use, renovating existing school and school buildings, and improving local infrastructure.

The renovation or construction volunteer work will vary depending on building structure of the school and the unique school needs, and the different stages of construction work.

Volunteers can choose to volunteer for durations ranging from 1 week to 12 weeks and if you are supporting longer-term building projects, you will have the opportunity to continue the construction work of previous volunteers.

 A strong work ethic and an enthusiasm for a challenge are the key requirements for these projects, which offer a rewarding opportunity for volunteers who like to see the physical results of their hard work.
