There are so many ways to get involved, from cheering on a marathon runner, participating in a challenge or volunteering at our office in the UK or at our projects in Sri Lanka. If it's minutes or months, hours or days, the time you give really does help us make a great difference.
We offer volunteering opportunities for individuals, small groups, schools or businesses who are looking to do something for your personal growth, CSR or make a difference. Whomever you are we will make sure you have a unique and amazing time.
We are currently looking for professionals such as teachers, doctors, and trainers who can offer their time to assist in our work in Sri Lanka.
