Προθεσμία υποβολής αιτήσεων: 18η Απριλίου.
"Compagnons Bâtisseurs" (CBF) is an NGO founded in 1957. Its aim was to help a population that had been hard hit by the effects of World War II, to reconstruct those homes destroyed during the conflict. From the very beginning up until today, CBF has been putting the principle of solidarity into practice in the form of workcamps, as well as promoting peace and better understanding between people from all over the world.
The volunteer will be working under the supervision of the staff of CBF (administrative and technical mentors) and participate in technical works (e.g. reroofing, insulation, plumbing, electricity works, toilets installation, room recreation…) to improve people’s home. The beneficiaries of the project are people facing social and economic difficulties and challenging situations. The project aims to involve the beneficiaries in the improvement of their living conditions by doing the works in their homes all together.
Although the main purpose of the volunteer placement is the implementing the technical work, the activity has an important social and human aspect that makes the intervention different from a professional one. Furthermore, most of the time the volunteers share the lunch or at least a coffee with the family which provides a valuable time to get to know each other and may create strong links based on trust and sharing.
