Find able help for your construction projects by offering accommodation and meals


As a Hovos host, you can pick the right person from our many travelers. They have all created profiles with their information and available skills.

Hovos lets you gain exposure to different construction styles from across the globe, just by giving you the freedom and flexibility to pick the volunteer of your choice.
