This Community Volunteer Program is suitable for proactive volunteers who are interested in helping build a better community for the underprivileged to live in. Volunteers are placed in the local houses to work, both on and off the field. Under on-field tasks, volunteers work to build homes, agricultural support, refurbish school structure, landscaping, community cleanups and various other construction works. For the off-field community development work, volunteers can assist the local authorities in providing research and teach extra-curricular skills to people from a disadvantaged background in order to help them make a better living.
