Shoddy infrastructure is an enormous problem in Ghana. Run-down buildings are a common site, and include schools, hospitals and community centers. While construction in Accra is on the rise, nearly all of it is going towards high-end developments where money and influence is. Volunteers bring energy and manpower to help build schools, and renovate buildings serving Accra’s poor.
Le projet de construction mis en place par notre organisme contribue non seulement à améliorer les conditions de vie des habitants en participant à la construction de bâtiments communautaires, mais aussi à redynamiser les communautés en les impliquant aux travaux de construction et en leur offrant un accès plus facile à l’éducation.
Over 50,000 people in Portugal do not have access to basic amenities in their homes such as running water or heating. People living below the poverty line are unable to maintain their homes, so volunteers are needed to help them do so. Volunteers work to help renovate houses, allowing people to live in comfort and have pride in their homes.
