The Green Lion
Many of the villagers here in Coihueco need help with renovation and light construction. The situation extends to communal areas such as schools, churches, clinics, healthcare and community centers as well. Through renovation and light construction work from people such as yourself, we can assist the community while allowing you to engage with the local people and environment, as you learn more about the local culture. Work can include housing renovation and light construction such as painting. Typical tasks could be repairing chairs, tables, toilets, building walls, repairing roofs, tiling or even gardening. Tasks will depend on local conditions and what is needed at the time. You can expect to be working 4-5 hours a day.
