In honor of the Fuller Center for Housing’s 10th anniversary we are inviting you to join us for an exciting week of building in Nicaragua! We are looking for 50 people to help us build 10 homes and to continue the movement to end poverty housing in the small fishing village of Las Peñitas. You will be working alongside the families and other locals to help with various aspects of the building process. Go ahead and sign up below or keep scrolling to learn more.

Type of Work

We will be working on 10 new homes that are built with concrete blocks and will typically be 300-400 square feet. You don’t need any building exprience as there will be jobs for everyone.

You will be helping with a variety of different tasks related to new home construction. Work will typically involve helping the masons and carpenters — carrying block, mixing concrete and mortar, moving materials, consturcting the roof, etc.


Once in Las Peñitas, the group will be staying at Hotel Suyapa which is located right on the beach! It is a basic hotel that will meet all of your needs.
