Travail

We will be helping in a building project for a community center which will cater for the community. The building project includes plastering and brick making at project site and other local activities. We hope to finish at least four rooms with assistance from community members and well-wishers to the project. Volunteers and community members will give support and guide community work and building such as mixing cement and plastering. This is an exciting project as we hope to bring some change especially for the elderly and the children. Volunteers have opportunity to work with different people in the community and interact with children after school.
