7 to 14 days


The Construction Project assists disadvantaged people in northern Vietnam who are living under very basic conditions. Houses and schools often do not provide protection from the weather and kitchen and bathroom facilities are either non-existent or unhygienic. Your group will join a remote community and together you will work together to improve their livelihoods. Activities may include building roads, toilets in schools, kitchens, reconstructing school yards and painting schools and community buildings. In your free time you’ll be able to example the region, taking part in activities like trekking, cultural exchange with the village and learning how to create handicrafts with the artisans
