Volunteer

Over just one week, you’ll work with a team of like-minded volunteers from all walks of life, home partner families and local labourers to help construct a new home for a family in need.

No prior experience is required, and there is a job for every skill and fitness level. Depending on the country you visit, you might be mixing concrete, weaving bamboo, laying bricks, digging trenches or painting.

You can travel and build in unique locations across Asia Pacific and beyond when you volunteer with us. By working alongside a family, you give them an opportunity to be independent and have healthier, happier, more secure futures. Their lives will be forever changed and your hard work will continue to have a lasting impact long after you have returned home.

Volunteer with your friends and family, school group or workplace for a team-building experience with a difference. Please note that the minimum volunteer age is 15, and those under 18 require a guardian. Sign up today to help build strength, stability and independence

what volunteers say

“Aside from being an amazing experience, and the newfound friends you gain, the mere fact that you are lending a helping hand to a stranger is so endearing. The memories that you create from helping others who aren’t as fortunate as you will stick with you for a lifetime. It’s strange to think, but labouring for free for a week in a developing country is actually, well, fun. Really really fun!”

“Knowing that you are making a difference in their lives has to be the best part,” said Alex. “It was also incredibly rewarding seeing an actual physical structure in front of you at the end of the build that your team and yourself built from scratch.”
