Group AidCamps - What does a volunteer construction project involve?

Group AidCamps are projects that enable you to unite with other volunteers to fund and help implement a larger community development aid project than you could by yourself. These AidCamps usually centre on a volunteer construction project that will provide a community building for local children, such as a village primary school, an orphanage, a resource centre or a health clinic.

Key features of a Group AidCamp:
•    Typically consists of 10-15 volunteers
•    Around two - three weeks in duration
•    Suitable for individuals, pairs or small groups
•    Open to anyone over the age of 18

While our Group AidCamps attract a wide range of people and ages, you'll find that everyone has something in common – a desire to help!

Almost anyone can help to build a school or community building abroad. There's no "hard hat" work and you don't have to have any skills, experience, or the muscles of a bricklayer. The serious construction work is done before you arrive by local workers, funded by the AidCamp.  You'll be helping with the finishing work, usually plastering, painting, decorating, and other bits and pieces to get it from being four-walls-and-a-roof to a finished building.

What's included in a Group AidCamp?
Group AidCamps are offered as a package, with most in-country costs (accommodation, most food, ground transportation and excursions) included in the registration fee. They are guided projects, led by one of our project co-ordinators from the UK who will be with you the whole time, from picking you up at the airport on your arrival to taking you back there when the project is over.

As well as the voluntary work itself, all of our Group AidCamps have an itinerary organised around them designed to familiarise you with the real country. Where the project allows we will also take you to some of the more traditional natural and cultural heritage sites of the region.
