Building & Construction Volunteer Work in Ecuador, South America

Building & Construction Volunteering Opportunity in Ecuador - Latin America

Many Ecuadorian families live in substandard, overcrowded, poorly constructed homes which are barely maintaining its structural integrity, resulting in very unsafe and unsanitary living conditions. With your help, more deserving families can have decent places to call home. Our objectives are to help Ecuadorian families benefit from the availability of existent housing programs.

This volunteer project in Ecuador is ideal for volunteers interested in construction and building, modernizing homes, or simply helping people and their families to live in safer and comfortable conditions. If you are looking for a rewarding experience to provide decent housing for a family in need, people from all over the world are welcome to join us to build simple, decent and affordable houses, working in partnership with the community, local authorities, etc.

As a volunteer in the construction program you will work as part of a volunteer team. Often you'll also work alongside villagers, learning about traditional methods of building and working.

Our infrastructure and construction volunteering also offer you the opportunity of being involved in the construction of houses, school buildings, parks, libraries, community buildings, bridges and so on.

Help to build, rebuild or renovate homes, school or bridges in rural and poorest areas of Ecuador. This is an immensely rewarding volunteer project.
