Sri-Lanka Volunteer Program

Company : iVolunteerTravel
Location : Sri Lanka
Duration: 2 weeks to 4 months
Approx Costs: 750 to 2500 € Euro

The Idex programs in Sri-Lanka  continue to follow our ethos of “Travel that Matters” and provide an opportunity to the travelers to have a safe, enjoyable experience that leaves them more developed than they were before the start of a trip.

Idex has been offering volunteer and travel experiences to international volunteers for over a decade in India, Nepal and Thailand. Building on our diverse experience, having provided placements, travels and learning opportunities for many volunteers since the start of the programs, we have now taken our successful approach and extended it to another appealing and thrilling destination: Sri Lanka

The model of our India, Nepal and Thailand Volunteer Program has proved successful for many years, so we have taken it and applied the same principles in Sri Lanka: the participants work with the local community for improving the quality of education and care special institutions and regular schools.

Colombo is the largest city in Sri Lanka is known as the financial and commercial capital of the country. Located on the west coast of the island and it is the official capital of Sri Lanka or the parliament capital of Sri Lanka. 

Colombo is a busy and vibrant city with a mixture of modern life and ancient historical colonial buildings and ruins that offers a variety of experiences. It has the lazy charm of the historical era combined with the liveliness of a modern city. Colombo is an ideal location to start our program in Sri Lanka

Volunteers will have the possibility of engaging themselves in a number of activities at local projects.  All volunteers need to be asked at the time of enrolment about their preference and that need to be mentioned when being booked for the program.
