- You will participate in a large-scale project. Five cottages used to be inhabited within the hamlet, however a lack of water supply made this no longer possible. In 2017, the association searched for and located a new water source that could supply the these homes. Your mission will be to continue this work begun in 2018 by connecting the new water source to the cottages by pipes that will bring the two together. With a technical supervisor, you will discover several methods and different types of work such as: masonry, clearing work, plumbing, etc.
