Construction Volunteering in Nepal

Nepal Construction Programme

Construction volunteers in Nepal help to improve schools and provide solutions to their needs, as well as local houses through the construction project in Nepal. Thanks to the support of the volunteers, safe spaces are created for children to continue their education and to encourage them to continue to grow professionally after the earthquakes in Nepal.
