Volunteer in Honduras - This Build is now FULL

Date: 7 - 16 September

Cost: £1700 (click for breakdown)

Project: Women Build

This incredible build honours the memory of environmental activist and indigenous rights campaigner Berta Isabel Cáceres Flores. Working with women from all walks of life, this build will provide strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter in Siguatepeque – Honduras.

Make Your Impact

This is your unique opportunity to help families build their homes by raising vital funds and directly contributing to our work on the ground.

This build has been created in memory of Berta Cáceres, an indigenous rights campaigner who was tragically killed on 3 March 2016.

We build real homes, which have the power to improve health and education, create strong communities and safety for women and children, allowing them to thrive and not just survive.

Why Women Build in Honduras?

We build in Honduras because vulnerable families deserve substantial housing.

We build real homes that have the power to improve health and education, create strong communities and safety for vulnerable people, allowing them to thrive and not just survive.

Unsafe and inadequate housing is a major problem faced by people living in rural areas. Houses with thatched roofing, week foundations and flooring with mud and cow dung are unsafe and require frequent repairs.

Be A Part of Something Bigger

If you want to be a part of something bigger, to harness your power as a woman, to help build homes for other vulnerable women and communities who are desperate to change their lives, then this project is for you.

The trip will be a life-changing opportunity to engage in teamwork, meet like-minded people, make friends and empower women in need, through shelter.

All volunteers will be covered for emergency medical care in country through our insurance policy with Chubb.
