About Program

The main focus of our Building and Renovation project is to build suitable and comfortable accommodation for the children living on the streets of Saint-Louis Senegal. These children live in extremely precarious conditions but the housing built through this project aims to provide somewhere safe for the children to stay.

In this project, volunteers work alongside local senegalese staff and contractors to carry out the building work. The renovation aspect of the project involves painting and decorating as well.

Consider your impact: Volunteering abroad can be a rewarding experience for both volunteers and local communities, and at Go Overseas, we believe all volunteers should have the resources to make informed decisions about the type of volunteer project they want to partake in. However, despite best intentions, some organizations offering placements in orphanages may unknowingly place children in danger. You can read about the potential dangers of orphanage volunteering here.
