A number of the local communities are without the basics of life which most of us take for granted - running, clean water, or electricity. As such, health becomes a constant issue... building water tanks which bring clean water to the village, instead of women trekking for miles to the nearest clean source, is a godsend. Building a childcare centre, or classroom, gives children the opportunity to learn, and improve their future chances in life. Planting banana trees saves the hills from eroding quickly, thus causing landslides and dangers to those living below. Making 4,000 bricks at our site, gives us the means to build a childcare centre. The Outdoor programme is a myriad of tasks, some of which are obviously benefiting the communities, others need an explanation.
The Outdoor Work placement is for those who are happy to get their hands dirty, who like physical labour, and are reasonably fit.
