WHAT DO I GET OUT OF VOLUNTEERING?
Volunteering brings mutual benefit. For the volunteer it can mean a life-changing experience while contributing one’s knowledge, skills and person to assist people in exceptional circumstances. For the community it registers as a mark of solidarity, that others care for them and their plight. This often leads to life-long friendships.
WHAT AM I EXPECTED TO DO?
Volunteers hit the ground running. A discreet piece of work is negotiated ahead of time for volunteers to do and helpful local people guide them through the initial stages. Volunteers work hard during the day, connect deeply with locals at all times, relax in the evenings and explore Sri Lanka’s many attractive tourist destinations on weekends.
WHERE DO I STAY?
Accommodation and food is provided in either affordable guesthouses or in village stay options. Personal support is provided by Bridging Lanka staff to address any issues which may arise. All volunteers are expected to pay for their travel, accommodation and food expenses.
