Are you searching for a life-changing experience you’ll remember forever? Would you like to go on the adventure of a lifetime while making an actual difference? Volunteering in Sri Lanka is a perfect way to travel to an exotic country while helping wonderful people in need!
Sri Lanka’s tourist industry has been steadily expanding since 2009, when the country’s civil war ended. This beautiful island country has something for every traveler. Sri Lanka is a surfing paradise, with warm-water surfing for
every ability level along the country’s beautiful coast. Lovely produce and delicious food abound, and amazing wildlife like the endangered Sri Lankan elephant, unspoiled beaches, and a deep cultural heritage make Sri Lanka a top tourist destination.
In spite of its beauty, Sri Lanka is still a developing country beset by poverty. Torn by civil war from the early 1980s until 2009, portions of the country still struggle to recover. Development is unequal, with those living in rural areas disproportionately affected.
The government’s spending on education infrastructure is sorely lacking, trapping poor children in a cycle of poverty. Extreme weather causes displacement, and poor communities also struggle with an increase in infectious diseases.
Today, Sri Lanka desperately needs volunteers more than ever, and this is where you come in.
When you join one of IFRE’s volunteer programs in Sri Lanka you will have the opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of poor children, communities, and elephants helping to make this world a better place.
