Volunteering

Volunteering in Sri Lanka gives one the chance to make a positive contribution to marginalised and disadvantaged communities in the country and by spending time in local communities, allows a more authentic and deeper understanding of the country and its people while being able to observe the many sights and wonders the island has to offer.
It is also a great way to help local projects and spend time with the people, wildlife and natural environments. Anyone with a desire to volunteer in Sri Lanka can choose from community, conservation, building and teaching projects across the country and have a variety of options to choose from, from community work in coastal Sri Lanka to building homes for orphans or even sea turtle conservation for wildlife enthusiasts.
Some options include volunteering as part of a gap year in Sri Lanka, an excellent way to gain a deeper understanding of the country as one would spend a lot of the gap year living and working alongside local people and experience a side of the country that tourists, and even experienced backpackers, rarely get to see. One could also simply opt for volunteer travel opportunities and because of its size and the relatively small distances involved, travel in Sri Lanka is simple and straightforward.
Many registered organisations offer a broad range of volunteering services in Sri Lanka and are known to provide a positive and fulfilling experience.
Options comprise of volunteering in orphanages, teaching village youth English, helping and empowering rural women, teaching English to Buddhist monks and community work in various parts of the island.  
Wildlife enthusiasts too have a wide range of projects to choose from – turtle conservation, elephant conservation projects, elephant mahout training and the conservation of endangered species and threatened ecosystems such as coral reefs, mangroves and wetland habitats.
