Program Description – Many of the villagers here need help with renovation and light construction. The little they earn goes towards their daily expenses, so it is common for their living quarters to be left in bad condition for long periods of time. This is especially the case with some of the homes belonging to refugees in the area. This situation extends to communal areas such as schools, churches, and clinics too. They are usually in need of more funding and their maintenance budget tends to be very small or not considered a priority. This is where we saw a way to help! By providing materials for repair, renovation and light construction, and using labour from our participants, we can assist the community while allowing you to engage with the community while helping them out! Our project coordinator will find the most suitable and more urgent work needed for you. Usually this will mean housing renovation and light construction like painting. Other typical tasks could be repairing chairs, tables, building walls, toilets, tiling, roof repair etc. Tasks will depend on local conditions and what is needed at the time, but you can expect to be working 4-5 hours a day. — Aims &Objectives – Assist the area with construction and renovation efforts in an organized team, Create cultural exchange opportunities through our efforts with the locals, Develop your teamwork and skills through hands on activity
As a homestay, you will be a guest in an intimate setting with your host family! A great way to get up close and experience the lives of the locals. Your hosts will be cleaning your room weekly, but you are expected to contribute in keeping a general tidiness around the home and your room. — Your hosts will be serving you from your home at the accommodation. The food will be typically local argentinian food that the family themselves would be eating!
