Description: We hope to help in a building project for a community center which will cater for elderly and children in the community. This center will provide shelter and also other community activities in Hammanskral. We hope to finish at least four rooms with assistance from community members and well-wishers to the project.
Type of Work: Volunteers and community members will give support and guide community work and building such as mixing cement and brick layering. 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 communities and interact with children after school.
Accommodation: Accommodation will be in a house and venue still to be confirmed both in Mabopane. Participants will be required to bring their own sleeping bags. The accommodation has a simple bathroom with shower and there is running water. The accommodation and work place have flushing toilets and do have electricity but should expect normal power cuts lasting to 4 hours on various time slots in the week.
