We will be helping in a building project for a community center which will cater for the community. The building project includes plastering and brick making at project site and other local activities. We hope to finish at least four rooms with assistance from community members and well-wishers to the project.
Volunteer Work Volunteers and community members will give support and guide community work and building such as mixing cement and plastering. This is an exciting project as we hope to bring some change especially for the elderly and the children.
Volunteers have opportunity to work with different people in the community and interact with children after school.
Accommodation will be in a house in Soshanguve. Participants will be required to bring their own sleeping bags. The accommodation has a simple bathroom with shower and there is water. The accommodation place has flushing toilets and do have electricity but should expect normal power cuts lasting to 4 hours on various time slots in the week. (Not every day)
Language: The community has multi-cultural people and English is mostly spoken with local languages such as Sotho, Zulu, and Tshwana to name a few.
