About the project
Working with the support of the organisation staff (technical mentors), the volunteers will participate in technical works (painting, insulation, plumbing, electricity works, toilets installation, room creation…) to improve people’s home. The inhabitants are people who are facing social and economic difficult and challenging situations whose the improvement of their living conditions. There will be a lot of collective workshop as well involving inhabitants and related to DIY.
Although the main purpose is the carrying out of the technical work, the activity has therefore an important social and human aspect that makes the intervention different from a professional one. Furthermore, most of the time the volunteers share the lunch (or at least a coffee) with the family which provides a valuable time to get to know each other and may create strong links based on trust and sharing.
