The main project offered to volunteers is the housing project, however there are number of areas within the Mwandi community were volunteers can be involved.
The Housing Project is vital and the main project for the mission. The goal of the project is to provide safe and secure housing for the vulnerable populations (orphans, seniors, and people in poverty) of Mwandi.
The Volunteer section of this website has more information on the housing project.
