Building Trust are happy to announce that we will be working alongside We Yone Child Foundation to design and build a new hall space for a school that we have been working on for the last 2 years. Building Trust have a number of sustainable design and build projects around the World in 2016, ranging from schools and housing to wildlife conservation and healthcare.

We are offering a hands on participatory workshop where you will gain experience in sustainable building techniques and understand more about humanitarian design while building worthwhile projects that will have a huge benefit to the local community. You will gain an insight into a number of building techniques and architectural styles.

This is a hands on course and will result in a new building for the school and community, you will learn on-site skills such as:

- Cinva Ram brick making (compressed stabilized earth bricks.)
- Wall building and brick laying with natural mortars
- Soil testing and stabilization
- Rammed earth form work and compacting
- Lime plastering

We will also be running arts workshops with the local kids, making furniture and windows for the school.

Our volunteer workshops offer you the chance to meet some fantastic people, learn new skills, visit fascinating locations and contribute to the empowerment of local communities and worthwhile causes.
