Volunteer Globally is a week-long mission involving 15 UAE-based volunteers traveling to disadvantaged communities around the world to assist in the construction of a school for the local community.
The school work site activities include digging trenches, laying bricks, tying and reinforcing steel bars as well as mixing concrete, picking, sifting and pumping water. These activities are combined with cultural education workshops to better interact with the local community. Selection of volunteers is based on an application and interview process. Volunteers must be over 21 years and above, UAE residents, enthusiastic about social work and physically capable of performing construction work and adapting to the working conditions and routine of life in the village.
