INTBAU is seeking participants to take part in a volunteer programme in Pono village, Sindh, south east Pakistan. Two groups of volunteers will be hosted in Pono village from 26 March – 4 April and from 9 – 18 April.
Pono Eco Village is one of a cluster of 13 villages in the province where 1,000 families have become self-sufficient following the disastrous floods which displaced 33 million people across Pakistan in August 2022.
The programme offers international participants a chance to learn about low carbon construction techniques locals have adopted in this area with the support and guidance of humanitarian architect, Yasmeen Lari. Participants will be offered a choice of practical workshops, along with additional opportunities to experiment, design and build with these materials.
Volunteers are invited to learn, to share, and simply to offer their support to local communities by taking an interest in their extraordinary skill and resilience.
Prospective participants can download this handbook containing details about the programme and instructions on how to register for the workshops.
