CSR Activity Details
Estado de Mexico, Queretaro, Puebla, Hidalgo
Building a home: 15 to 30 participants per home
Building a schoolroom: 15 to 40 participants per schoolroom
If you would like for more people to participate in this activity it would be necessary to donate more than one home or schoolroom, or divide the group so that they can participate in teams of 30-40 people during different hours or days.
Days and Time Available:
Monday to Sunday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm
3 to 20 hours plus transfer times
Working as a team, participants will build a schoolroom or a home for an underprivileged family.
The construction is completed in three days using prefabricated wall panels that are later plastered with cement. In the hands of our coordinators and with no need of previous construction experience, participants will be involved in the different construction stages in order to build the house or schoolroom from beginning to end, working hand in hand with the beneficiaries.
The group can be involved in the construction during these three days either with the same participants or bringing in different participants each day.
It is also possible to participate just for a couple of hours one day, choosing the construction stage in which they want to be involved. In these cases, the non-profit will finish up the construction with the support of volunteers.

*The home or schoolroom is handed over to the beneficiaries on the third day.
It allows its beneficiaries to live in better, healthier and more dignified conditions. It promotes volunteering as an integral part of its mission; while participating in this activity volunteers discover the amazing experience of helping those in need, and in only three days they can see the results of their effort.
