THE GREEN LION
The Restoration and Renovation project supports small village communities in and around Kuching. It aims to restore and renovate buildings that are essential for the growth and development of the local community. We generally work at schools, centres, playgrounds and public libraries and support local families by improving living conditions of the community. Our project helps to relieve them of stress and pressures that they face in their day to day lives. You shall work under a local foreman (coordinator) who will provide them instructions and guide them throughout the program. The project involves hard physical and manual labor, as you will be laying bricks, doing carpentry, painting, laying tiles, and landscaping/gardening. All information about the project and various activities will be provided to you by our local coordinator on arrival. You will not be allowed to select projects since they are required to join the ongoing projects or carry out other restoration and renovation work as required by the local community. Aims &Objectives The aim of this project is to test your teamwork and creative skills through a new and fun challenge!
