  • Descripción


    Our Foundation is an educational program for Sri Lankan children aged 5 to 19, set in Sri Lanka. We teach the children in Anuradhapura (170 km from Colombo Airport) and Kurunegala (73 km from Colombo Airport) districts from two Academies. Here we have the on site online classes simultaneously for the children from any district of the entire country. We also support the nearby public schools by sending our Workawayers to them during the mornings to assist those students if and when necessary.

    The Academy was set up 25 years ago and has played a pivotal role in thousands of students’ lives directly and indirectly. Our aim is to connect these very talented young people to the rest of the world and to allow them to realize the potential they have. We need to persuade them for higher educational opportunities, vocational, technical, sports, and fine arts-related careers as these students are full of those talents.

    Volunteers would be required to teach English, computers, science, mathematics, geography, commerce, history, and health. Singing, dancing, painting, music, and other forms of artistic expression are also strongly encouraged! Sports are given a big place in the evenings too. We promote American football, baseball, basketball, cricket, and soccer at the Academy. We need coaches for these sports. You can be a professional or an amateur coach, we don't mind as long as you are ready to find resources and techniques.

    As a volunteer, you would be provided with food and accommodation from one of the students’ families. We ask you to give 5 hours a day, 5 days a week in return. You are free to take weekend trips to beautiful places of your interest and we can recommend the best places to visit.

    Each volunteer has to pay us 56 USD PER WEEK (8 USD per day) for food expenses. The volunteer can pay this DIRECTLY TO THE HOST FAMILY IN CASH and the volunteer will get A RECEIPT FROM THE FAMILY FOR THIS PAYMENT for the volunteer’s record purposes if needed. You are expected to pay this THE DAY YOU REACH THE HOST FAMILY AND WEEKLY thereafter.

    Sri Lankan village families can cook authentic Sri Lankan cuisine. If you want, you can learn the ways by spending some time with your host family in the kitchen and learn yourselves. You can take the recipients back home. For many of our former volunteers, this is fun to do. If you like, you can cook a meal or two from your country to give a flavor of your tastes to your hosts.

    The work is enjoyable and thoroughly rewarding, and life here is very beautiful with a strong sense of community. If you're looking for an exchange of culture away from the tourist path, this may be for you! We provide a certificate with the number of days and hours you volunteer in case it becomes helpful to you someway. Please collect it before you leave. If you forget this, we can still send you a digital copy.
