Building is most often the cornerstone of a LENDAHAND Mission Teams project. Supplies for the project are on site when the team arrives, and the workers are able to immediately begin pouring concrete, laying cinder block, and erecting trusses. Local villagers work with our group, and very quickly a building is erected. Buildings are intentionally left only about 90% completed, allowing the local congregation to put their seal of ownership on the structure.
Because the scope of our construction is quite large, we need skilled carpenters, bricklayers, and contractors. We also need unskilled ‘muscle’, to do other jobs like mixing concrete, carrying supplies, and pounding nails.
