The community development team in East Asia has various projects in rural villages. Our team builds water tanks, hand drills wells, lays pipes and water systems, builds pit latrines, trains in basic health care, and manufactures and distributes ceramic water filters. Throughout these manufacturing, construction and training projects, there are many ways individuals could help. A team of 2 or 3 can build several latrines in a week, a team of 5-10 can build a village or school water tank in 10 days, volunteers can help to manufacture and distribute water filters in remote refugee camps or poor schools, an engineer or engineering student with design experience can help us do some designs and reports.
Length of Stay (Days): 14
$30 per person per day
Work to be accomplished:
People with good experience working with cement and bricks is best, but we’ve had 14 yr old children helping us build water tanks, pastors applying fluoride gel to teeth. The most important skills are a heart to serve the Lord and the poor and flexibility.
Small, rural hotels, or village homes (if 1 or 2 volunteers)
High altitude and long walks through bad terrain so it is best for people with joint problems or heart problems to work in the factory where we make filters.
