Construction and Renovation in Chiang Mai

Construction and Renovation in Chiang Mai

Program description


Many Thai families in rural areas live in unsanitary housing, and numerous local public spaces and community facilities, such as temples and schools, still require significant renovations.

Among the missions, we include:

  • Renovation and installation of proper sanitation facilities
  • Painting and refurbishment of schools
  • Securing housing and dwellings
  • Collaborating with local communities to support their own development initiatives


You can do it all! From mixing cement and painting to more complex tasks like plastering walls and roof repairs, etc.

You will be guided and supervised by our coordinator, a construction professional, who will ensure site safety and the quality of the renovated housing.



  • Create an opportunity for cultural exchange through our collaboration with the local population
  • Gain practical experience in the field of small-scale construction and renovation
  • Support local Thai communities in improving their living conditions through our construction projects



Monday to Friday:

After breakfast, you will arrive at the construction site at 08:30. Our coordinator will explain your tasks for the day.

Typically, you will spend around 4 to 5 hours per day on the project, with a lunch break at the site. You will finish at 13:30. Afternoons and weekends are free.

This schedule may be subject to change or modifications depending on the weather, local conditions, or unforeseen circumstances.
