Restoration Works International
Additional Info about Us
We believe that communities prosper through preservation and renewal of their historic sites.
We believe that by bringing people of different cultures together to restore these historic sites, we can help communities in developing countries achieve economic benefits.
We believe that rebuilding, renewing and protecting cultural heritage advances sustainable development, provides opportunities for cross-cultural understanding and helps communities proudly celebrate their unique place in the world.
We believe in the value of work as the universal language that connects an individual’s commitment to a group effort, benefiting the larger community.
HOW WE FULFILL OUR MISSION:
We use national and international volunteer tourism as the catalyst for our mission to help communities around the world protect their cultural heritage sites and prosper through preservation and renewal of their history.
