Oyster Worldwide Gold Residential – Building Volunteering in Portugal

Thousands of people in Portugal do not have access to running water, a hot shower or basic amenities in their homes. Join an inspirational charity that goes into people’s homes to help renovate them, and give them a new life.

As a volunteer on this project, you will help with tiling, fitting units or showers, painting, flooring and decorating. You will be fully trained, guided and supervised on each activity, so you don’t need any prior experience.


You can volunteer here throughout the year for 1 – 12 weeks. The summer months are very popular, so we would encourage booking early to guarantee your space.

Accommodation and food

You will be living in an eco guest house in the lovely city of Lisbon. You will be sharing a room with up to 8 other people in spacious airy dorms. Bathrooms are shared with other volunteers. Three delicious meals are provided each day.

Free Time

You will have free time at weekends to relax and explore. There are lots of trips that you can take to beaches, cities, cultural sites and vineyards, or you can just choose to explore the vibrant city of Lisbon.

How much does it cost?

£1059 for one week; extra weeks £179 per week

Project requirements

Volunteers must be 18+ to participate.
