May 2020 UPDATE:
We have recently moved into our new house where we are hoping to create a co-live/ work space. While we’re taking this time to slowly put things together,’it would be great having help to do so and have a communal vibe :)
If you’re in the district of Weligama/ Ahangama and able to come help we will happily give you a private room while staying with us.
Looking for sustainably minded people that want to do good things for the planet :)
VERY IMPORTANT TO NOTE: We have dogs & cats so our volunteers MUST LOVE ANIMALS and be comfortable to help with the not so fun jobs that go with them - feed them and pick up their "mess" once in a while.

STAY SAFE & TRAVEL RESPONSIBLY
We have a small homestay located in the south Coast which is just a couple of minutes walk from some amazing beaches/ surf breaks and a quick 10 minute bus/scooter ride to multiple other surf breaks for beginners and intermediates. The town is mega chilled; the locals are friendly and the scenery is beautiful.
We are very passionate about the environment & animal welfare and hope to be part of growing sustainable tourism here through leading by example and giving back to the community. Along with running our homestay we are part of a growing community called Good Market which we are working on a project with to help build eco tourism.
We are currently looking for people to help us with:
Social media- You love taking photos/ video and creating content for Instagram/ Facebook and may have experience with maintaining a website
Sustainability- we are trying to inspire our community with our efforts to maintain a sustainable home and look for people to help bring change to our surrounding area
Creative & social- it’s great to have creative good people around to boost the vibe and help bring new life to the place :)
If this sounds like it would suit you then we would love to hear from you! Please send me a message and we can take it from there.
NOTE: It is illegal to work or volunteer with a tourist visa in Sri Lanka- we are not looking for workers, we are looking for new friends to come help our house and our community becomes a better place :)
