On this project, you will get your hands dirty with construction projects. Our main focus when constructing is working at the hearing impaired school allocated to the poor. This project takes place in the city of Udaipur where we are located at. Despite the previous efforts, the work here is far from done and we continue to renovate pathways, toilets, walls, etc. Moreover, those with artistic talents can help decorate the walls by creating images and sketches of their home countries and cultures. We have the feeling that this will be a nice way of reflecting the hard and good work that has been done by our participants over the past years. Other construction efforts might be carried out in the local village (renovating and building houses and sanitation facilities) or working on construction projects at the local hospitals – this very much depends on the needs of any particular time and so our participants will be using their construction skills where they are most needed!
About the Accommodation : There is a mini library where you can read, a beautiful garden to relax in and dining and lounge areas where you can hang out with fellow participants.

Food Arrangements : The meals are a mix of Western and Indian food, consisting mainly of vegetarian dishes including rice and vegetables. You can expect to have a chicken dish about twice per week. You can also use the kitchen facilities to cook for yourself or eat out at any of the local restaurants.
