Mexico is located at the southern end of the continent of North America, officially called the United Mexican States.
Mexico is a nation where affluence, poverty, natural splendour and urban blight rub shoulders. It has the second-largest economy in Latin America and is a major oil exporter. But prosperity remains a dream for many Mexicans, and the socio-economic gap remains wide. Rural areas are often neglected and huge shanty towns ring the cities.
Our ReBuild adventures to Mexico take place in April each year for 10 days. You'll play a key role in a 5-day house building project as well as building relationships and learning about a different culture.
This adventure is £1845 including flights, insurance, training and all in country costs.
South Africa is situated at the southern tip of the continent of Africa. South Africa has one of the continent's biggest and most developed economies.
Up until 1994 it was ruled by a white minority government, which enforced a separation of races with its policy called apartheid. The apartheid government eventually negotiated itself out of power after decades of international isolation, armed opposition and mass protests. The democratically-elected leadership encouraged reconciliation and set about redressing social imbalances, but the economy has struggled.
We run two types of trips to South Africa, both during the summer;
ReBuild involves a 5-day house building project as well as the opportunity to build relationships and learn about a different culture.
ReNew projects work with local churches to build a play park for children, as well as supporting the children's work done in local schools and churches.
The cost for ReBuild is £1945 and for ReNew is £1545, including flights, insurance, training and all in country costs.
New for 2019
Situated on the equator on Africa's east coast, Kenya has been described as "the cradle of humanity". In the Great Rift Valley palaeontologists have discovered some of the earliest evidence of man's ancestors. In the present day, Kenya's ethnic diversity has produced a vibrant culture but is also a source of conflict.
Pressing challenges include high unemployment, crime and poverty. Droughts frequently put millions of people at risk.
Our ReNew adventure to Kenya takes place during the summer holidays. You'll learn about a different culture while working alongside locals to develop community spaces and facilities to combat loneliness and isolation among widows.
The cost of this adventure is £1545 including flights, insurance, training and all in country costs.

Countries Coming Soon

Landlocked Uganda has transformed itself from a country with a troubled past to one of relative stability and prosperity.
The country has won praise for its vigorous campaign against HIV/AIDS. However, still faces a number of challenges.
Tanzania is home to around 120 different tribal groups and almost 70% of people live in rural areas, living off the food they grow. 12 million people live on less than $1 a day despite the country having one of the fastest growing economies in Sub-Saharan Africa. Tanzania is also where you'll find Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain.
Togo is one of the smallest countries in Africa and has struggled to build a stable economy since becoming independent almost 60 years ago. Togo remains dependent on foreign aid to support the close to 8 million people who live here.
Cambodia has grown from being one of the poorest countries in Asia to having one of the fastest growing economies, however around 70% of the population still live on less than $3 a day.
Many primary schools in Cambodia are without safe water, meaning children are more likely to become ill and not be able to attend school regularly.
