Volunteer Programs Sri Lanka

Volunteering in Sri Lanka with Love Volunteers is the perfect introduction to this diverse and fascinating country. As with all our placements, volunteers work side by side with locals which provides a unique insight into the people and the culture of the country. Love Volunteers and our partner in Sri Lanka work closely to ensure volunteers both impart and gain real benefit from their stay here, while remaining safe and gaining the respect of the local people.

Undoubtedly volunteers will encounter unfamiliar ways of thinking, speaking, and interacting, meaning they are constantly absorbing the customs and culture of Sri Lanka. With wonderful beaches, marvellous mountains, lush green forests, exciting wildlife, spectacular cities or ancient history, Sri Lanka packs in a lot of excitement within its small borders.

Volunteering in Sri Lanka will see participants helping on one of the following projects: Teaching English in government schools, working with children with disabilities, working with children in kindergartens and orphanages, or assisting in a medical setting high in the tea plantations. Placement locations include Galle on the south west coast, Badulla which is about 230km from Colombo towards the eastern slopes of the central hills of Sri Lanka, and Wattala which is a large suburb only a short distance from Colombo city centre.

A range of personal skills will come into play, including decision-making, and initiative, as well as creative problem-solving. You’ll need stamina, resourcefulness, respect and a sense of humour.
