A day on Konzanso:
Each day can be quite different on Konzanso which makes a varied and diverse trip.
Generally, the day runs from 8:00 - 4:00 with an hours lunch break. Volunteers are involved in getting stuck into the work with the team of skilled Malawian builders, painters, and carpenters.
Over the course of the summer, the three trips will all contribute to the construction of a new classroom block, as well as work on refurbishing 2 existing classrooms within the school.
Each Konzanzo team will have a different working day, most days but here are a list of the main tasks encountered by each team:
Team 1: Collecting and moving bricks, cement mixing, moving cement, painting windows, helping builders on site
Team 2: Painting trussess, mixing cement, beginning the classroom refurbishment, knocking plaster off walls, plastering, painting
Team 3: Painting, floors, touch-ups, wall designs, finishing touches
The Classroom construction will be split across 3 teams:
28th May - 22nd June 2018
2nd July - 27th July 2018
6th August - 31st August 2018
We ask that our volunteers fundraise or make a donation of £650 to go towards the cost of constructing the classroom.
This money is also used to take care of you when you're in Malawi, providing you with accommodation, water and meals Monday - Friday, in-country transport and the support of our team!
