Typical Day

MORNING

TIE UP YOUR BOOTS - We start every morning with a reflection and group breakfast. After that, we’ll grab tools and head out for the morning work shift. On a water project we’ll hike through the hills to dig trenches from the water source to the community. On a sanitation project, we’ll visit a local family and build a bathroom outside their home.

TIME TO CHILL - After a traditional lunch, we’ll take some time to relax, explore the community, play with the local kids, or take a power nap on a hammock. Don’t get too comfy, there’s more work to be done.

AFTERNOON

BACK TO WORK - In the afternoon we’ll go back out to build another bathroom, work on the construction of a water holding tank, carry pipe, or mix cement. After the work is done for the day, we’ll take turns with bucket showers and have dinner together.
