If you get fired up by the prospect of a overseas building project, head to Honduras. You can help build homes and schools in the poorest parts of the Western Highlands. The native Lenca people live in extreme poverty, often three families under one roof. You could help them to make a new start. This is a real hands-on project where you help with everything from making sun dried bricks, to painting outside walls. The best bit is seeing the results of your work as you help families move into their new homes, or watch students attend the first day at their new school.
