Volunteer Abroad in Sri Lanka

 
Why Volunteer in Sri Lanka?
With its beautiful landscapes and friendly people, Sri Lanka provides opportunities for relaxation and adventure. Explore this awe-inspiring country from the beaches to the lush forests to the majestic mountains. The locals are welcoming and provide the opportunity to learn about the history of this island nation from their perspective. Although Sri Lanka has shown its resilience following years of challenges, the country and its people still need help in rebuilding and restoring. Local non-profit organizations need the support of volunteers in protecting the country’s wildlife populations and natural resources and in providing further educational opportunities for children in the community. By assisting with these projects and others, volunteers are able to make a meaningful and sustainable contribution to the country of Sri Lanka.
 
Program Information**
 
Live in Colombo
World Endeavors volunteers live in Colombo, the capital city of Sri Lanka. Being the largest city, there is no shortage of activities for volunteers; from cultural to educational to entertainment activities, it is easy to keep busy in Colombo. This may include visiting historical colonial buildings or Gangaramaya Temple, sampling local cuisine, or exploring the country from coast to coast. Volunteers in Sri Lanka are able to experience a mixture of modern life and history in this vibrant city. 
 
Fields
We offer volunteer placements in Sri Lanka in the following fields:
 
Program Snapshot

Housing: Volunteers in Sri Lanka share a furnished house with other volunteers, where a small staff oversees the house and prepares meals. Housing accommodations are modest, safe, and clean, but may differ from Western norms in terms of space or amenities. Volunteers will share a room with other participants of the same gender and will have shared bathroom and kitchen facilities. Participants are expected to respect the volunteer home and their fellow residents and be open to the adventure of experiencing a different way of life in a new environment.

Dates: Admissions are rolling, and programs can begin on any Monday throughout the year. 

Duration: Participants can choose any duration between 2 and 12 weeks. 

Cost: See our website for program fee information
