Hi, my name is Udaya, I'm from Sri Lanka, and i'm 28 years old. I born in the mountains of Welimada but we live now in Ganemulla (Colombo). I have a younger sister and 2 elders brothers who don't live with us in that moment.
I have a local travel agency (registered in government) that has been growing little by little and I need help.
My big dream is to be able to generate an activity that allows us to offer quality and dignity work to the people of my country.
For the moment i have many clients from Europe and specially from Spain, and I always provide a humanity hospitality. trying to promote sustainable and responsible tourism.
All my life I've lived in direct contact with nature and its rhythms. I firmly believe that my duty is to develop a project where it can be able to participate in environmental education and create direct actions for protection and maintenance of our natural heritage.
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
Help with Computers/ Internet
In this "workaway" I propose a cultural exchange, where we can share life experiences, learn about the simple and humble way of life of our people.
I feel a great passion for my land and I would love to share it with you.
In the same way, in my family, if you wish, you can learn Sinhalese, learn my mother's delicious recipes, learn about the customs of a Buddhist family and live in a local, rural and very quiet environment.
My agency has started to grow and we need to create a website where we can open the services we offer to the world. Today, word of mouth through social networks has been my biggest source of customer arrival, so I would also love to improve this aspect.
in short, I would need help to:
+ Rebuilding our entire site (knowledgeable programmers needed)
+ Graphic Designer (InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator)
+ Digital Marketer
Two partners will work with you to continue the maintenance and updating of the contents to the website.
In future my plan is rent my house for tourist as a home stay (with local experience).
so i also need help for prepare the house:
+ painting house
+ digital marketing
