TEECH

TEECH is a group of courageous individuals who travel to Moldova providing aid and improving the lives of people in poor communities once a year in August.

Where is it?

Moldova

What will I be doing?

You will be providing aid and improving basic living conditions for people of all ages in schools, orphanages and hospitals. Examples of recent work include creating bathrooms for the children and community and connecting water to the school as well as installing sanitary ware, toilets, sinks, hand driers, and water heaters. You would also deliver aid to various contacts in the local area (e.g beds & medical supplies to hospitals and clothes & shoes for orphanages).

What impact would I have?

The volunteers will be working for and with the locals to help improve their lives.  Whilst on site volunteers will experience what it is like to have no running water, no toilets and no showers. By sparking enthusiasm with the local people we hope to enable and encourage self-help and enterprise to continue after we have left.
Who would I be working with?
A team of approximately 20-40 volunteers armed with tools travel overland by coach to endeavor to complete the project.
