Overview

Join Maranatha in Zambia!

Volunteers at this project will lay block at a school campus. The schools in Zambia often have big infrastructure needs including dormitories, classrooms, administration buildings, and staff housing. The exact school campus and job scope is still to be determined. Depending on the skills of the volunteers who register and the current COVID-19 restrictions at the time of this project, the group may also reach out into the community through activities like children’s ministry and health education.

This project will also offer an optional safari excursion at the end of the project, available for an additional cost.
