Inspire Volunteering introduces an exciting new range of volunteer projects in Sri Lanka

Inspire Volunteering has announced the launch of an exciting new range of volunteer opportunities in Sri Lanka. Those looking to volunteer in Asia often overlook Sri Lanka, but its beautiful tropical scenery and rich Buddhist culture make it an alluring setting to volunteer abroad.

Inspire supports ethical and sustainable volunteering and as a volunteer in Sri Lanka you can help some of the country’s poorest rural communities. Inspire’s volunteer work is based in and around Kandy, where you can work on teaching, childcare and community projects to help those in greatest need.

Volunteer teachers work in pre-schools and upper-schools, helping to raise levels of education and improve English language skills in rural communities. The childcare volunteer projects are based in under-funded orphanages, where volunteers support local staff as they care for disadvantaged children and entertain them with art, music and games. For a truly unique volunteer abroad role, join one of the community development projects and work in an elderly care home or help renovate Buddhist temples.

Inspire Volunteering gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in local communities and soak up the rich Buddhist culture that makes Sri Lanka such a special travel destination. Inspire’s volunteer work in Sri Lanka is supported by a dedicated in-country team, giving you the support you need to make the most of the exciting volunteer opportunities.
