Work in close partnership with several schools and many individual partners throughout Kochi. Working with our experienced staff member, you will learn a wide variety of construction, design and manufacturing skills, whilst often assisting skilled workmen and labourers from the community.

Tasks are chosen and vary according to need at the time, and this can range from small home improvements, site beautification, furniture making and installation works. So far we have assisted in the building of 14 houses in Santhom colony, a playground, mass beautification of the colony, as well as the assistance in renovating a counselling centre for children.

Hours will be long, and we expect volunteers to really get their hands dirty and get involved!
