  • A tour of the area on local tuktuks or by foot

Local staff support:

Our partners Sri Lanka in-country support is unparalleled. Every single project area has a Program Manager assigned and paid members of staff who are all locals from the area. They are trained in country to follow best practice procedures, including monitoring, security, and emergency procedures. 

During the first week local staff are always around to ensure everything is going well. After the first week, volunteers vary in the amount of contact that they need with local staff; however, our partners actively check on the status of every volunteer daily - through direct contact. Staff are also available during the day at the office and by phone.

Accommodation

Accommodation is clean, hygienic, and comfortable and regularly checked for suitability. Kitchen facilities and western style shared bathrooms. There is also a ‘chill out’ area for volunteers and a dining table set up.

Supervisors

Each volunteer, regardless of whether on a Teaching, Turtles, Conservation, is allocated a supervisor. The supervisor is not only responsible for enabling volunteers to carry out their work, but also for ensuring that they are happy and assisting with any problems or concerns.
