Volunteering in Indonesia

News — 19 Jul 2022

Our colleague, Eno Akpan, is off to Bogor, Indonesia for three weeks of volunteering with CAUKIN Studio and local Indonesian NGO, Cercondeso (Centre for Community Development and Social Entrepreneurship). Eno is joining a team to help construct and build a flexible open plan space that can be used for a variety of community activities, meeting, learning, teaching and praying. The project will look to adopt environmental design techniques with water harvesting and filtration systems making it a prototype sustainable scheme that can be rolled out elsewhere across Indonesia.

Eno says, “I’m hoping it will be a fun and challenging experience, to get involved with on-site construction and importantly, an opportunity to utilise my architectural skills to give back to local communities. We’ll be working with indigenous materials and local tradespeople too, so I'm excited to learn about construction in a new terrain and undertake hands-on work.”

Good luck, Eno, we look forward to seeing the finished project!
