Update: we don't need any help for January- February
We have a small hostel located in the south Coast which is just a couple of minutes walk from some amazing beaches (one of the prime Surf spots on the South coast) 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 hostel 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 :)
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.
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 :)
