    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You'll be working for only a few hours every day and the work hours are flexible. So you will have plenty of time to walk around the town, visit the lakes and for going for hiking if you like that. In my free time, I will be happy to show you around a little as well. We can help you learn Sinhalese and you can learn to cook local meals if you fancy that. You get to experience the best of both worlds: exploring places like a traveler and learning about the culture and ethnicity as a local.

  • Help


    I am looking for volunteers with various skills. If you have experience in constructing, social media marketing, painting, landscape designing, or web designing, then you are welcomed to send me a message. However, don't worry if your skill set isn't in the list of things I mentioned. You can explain how you can be helpful, and we can discuss how to put your abilities best to work.
    We are also looking for artists and volunteers for socializing with guests. You can help us plan events then we are happy to take you on board. My family does most of the work, and you don't have to work all day just assisting when you can.

We will provide the volunteers with three meals a day, essential Srilankan cuisine that my family cooks and eats. You are required to help out with cooking if that's something you enjoy.
