Building

Village Africa renovates and builds facilities needed by the community. We use an African team of builders and carpenters, sometimes assisted by casual labour. We use local materials wherever possible. Buying from the villagers has created a lot of employment for both men and women and has boosted the local economy. Village Africa has been building constantly since May 2006.
