Education mission in Sri Lanka

Education mission in Sri Lanka

Galle is a delightful coastal town situated on the south coast of Sri Lanka where the fusion of modern life and colonial heritage is simply stunning. The town’s historic charm contrasts starkly with the modern city, making it the perfect place to start your humanitarian journey in Asia!

Childcare in Nurseries:

We are looking for volunteers ready to commit and engage with early childhood centers in Sri Lanka. These improvised nurseries provide play and relaxation spaces for children aged 3 to 6 for a few hours each day. Local families entrust their children to the care of educators and social workers at the centers, who handle a large number of children daily. During this humanitarian journey in Asia, volunteers are tasked with assisting local educators in their daily tasks.

 

Daily Childcare Work:

  • Assisting caregivers in their daily activities.
  • Supporting teachers and offering supplementary activities.
  • Assisting with meals, teaching children table manners and sharing meals.
  • Conducting creative and musical workshops (songs, rhythms, etc.).
  • Outdoor games and activities.
  • Ensuring the proper implementation of schedules at the center.
  • Sensory development activities.

Education Mission in Sri Lanka: This program is designed for individuals with teaching experience, including educators, school teachers, and students with a minimum B2 level of English proficiency. The objective is to provide academic support to children aged 6 to 12 in subjects such as math, English, arts, and crafts. We provide the necessary teaching materials (textbooks, worksheets) to assist local schools. Volunteers engage in the education of young minds using interactive, motivating, and enjoyable methods.

English language instruction is crucial for children’s education and future professional prospects. As an added bonus, this program offers the opportunity to teach at a Buddhist temple for young monks one day per week, providing a unique immersion experience in Sri Lankan culture.

 

Daily Work During This Humanitarian Journey in Asia:

  • Teaching English, math, and life skills.
  • Sports and recreational activities.
  • Training and mentoring teachers.
  • Monitoring children’s progress.
  • First aid training and recreational activities.
  • Creating an environment conducive to playful learning using teaching materials.

ONCE ON SITE

Your Accommodation

You will be staying in one of the two volunteer houses, located in the Unawatuna district, just a 15-minute drive from the centre of Galle and a 5-minute walk from the beach.

The houses have several bedrooms (separated by gender) sleeping between 4 and 6 people, each with en-suite facilities. Each house also includes an outdoor area, offering a peaceful place to relax, socialise or simply enjoy the region’s pleasant climate. Meals are also included in the project.

Volunteers will be allocated according to the availability of each house.

For couples, families or those preferring a single, double or family room, additional options are available at an extra cost. For more information on rates and conditions, please contact us directly.

Additional Information

A conservative dress code must be adhered to during the project. Knees and shoulders should be covered, as well as any tattoos or body art. Additionally, participants are required to wear blue cotton teaching smocks (provided by the NGO) during their sessions. The rest of the clothing can be comfortable and casual.

 

Cultural Visits in Sri Lanka

Kandy & Colombo

Kandy is a highly touristy destination and the cultural capital of Sri Lanka. Nestled in the hills at an altitude of 488m, it is located 115 km from Colombo. The most popular sites in Kandy are the Temple of the Tooth and the Peradeniya Botanical Garden.

Colombo, on the other hand, is a port city with a rich colonial heritage situated on the west coast. It is characterized by a vibrant mix of ethnicities, cultures, and religions. It showcases the best and, at times, the worst of Sri Lanka. The city is a blend of colonial houses, fine restaurants, lush gardens, smoky streets, and bustling markets.

Yala National Park

Yala National Park is located in the southeast of Sri Lanka, near Tissamaharama. It is divided into 5 blocks, being the largest and most visited park in the country. The park covers an area of nearly 1,260 square kilometers, but only the 5th block is accessible to visitors; the other 4 blocks are strictly restricted reserves.

It is an ideal place to spot Sri Lanka’s “Big 4”: elephants, sloth bears, leopards, and buffaloes. The latter, though lesser-known, can be extremely dangerous. Elephants can be observed near Butuwe and Mahaseelawa waterholes during the dry seasons. The Uraniya tank is known for its fish, buffaloes, and crocodiles. These are just a few of the marvels to discover during this humanitarian journey in Asia!
