In a village called Rosia / Rothberg, near Sibiu, a charity association assists a segregated Roma community by building houses with local materials and techniques.

Dates: 1st July - 10th August

Accomodation: in the village public school -- please bring your own sleeping bag and mattress!

Food: food is provided, but we cook for ourselves

*** please register at least 2 weeks before your arrival ***
*** please register for at least one week of volunteering so we can have a well organised construction site ***

The materials used in the construction of the house are:
- earth and wood for the walls
- we will use straw for the earth mix
- we will bind our own reed mats for insulation
- recycled building materials such as bottles, tiles etc
- if time allows us, we will try to bring some esthetics and liveliness into the project by designing, together with the family, DIY furniture, swings for the children and other deco - elements.

All ideas are open to discussion and welcome!
