  • Description

    Description

    Our Foundation is an educational program for Sri Lankan children aged 5 to 19, set in the villages of Mahawilachchiya, Tantirimale, Ranpathvila, Ralapanawa and Anuradhapura city. Mahawilachchiya and Ralapanawa are situated on the edge of Wilpattu National Park, Sri Lanka. Tantirimale is in the close vicinity of Tantirimale Rock Temple and Ranpathvila is close to the Mihintale Rock Temple. Anuradhapura is full of ancient Buddhist monuments. You will have ample access to nature and ancient monuments if you join us as a volunteer.

    The school was set up 19 years ago and has played a huge role in hundreds of village students’ lives. 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 send them to universities and other higher educational opportunities, vocational, sports and fine arts related careers as these students are full of those talents.

    Volunteers would be required to teach English, basic IT, social media marketing and play educational games with the children. Singing, dancing, painting and other forms of expression also strongly encouraged! Sports are given a big place in the evenings too.

    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. There are bicycles for you to get around the village, and weekend trips will also be arranged to Wilpattu National Park, Treehouse parties, canoeing in a big reservoir, river bathing, ancient monuments, etc. within a cheap budget while you're here. You can see such experiences at these links.

    Each volunteer has to pay us 35 USD PER WEEK (5 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.

    The work is enjoyable and thoroughly rewarding, and life here is very beautiful and rural 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!

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    The five villagers we operate at are very rural, with beautiful and exotic landscape. You would be living with a local Sri Lankan family, who will share their culture with you in exchange for yours. The people here are very friendly and welcoming. Working with the children is also very rewarding, they are a very talented and wonderful bunch of individuals!

    If you want, weekend trips will also be arranged to Wilpattu National Park, Treehouse parties, canoeing in a big reservoir, river bathing, ancient monuments, etc. within a cheap budget while you're here.
