What did you like about the VoluntEars programme?

“A great mixture of volunteering, cultural visits and sightseeing.”

What did VoluntEars do well?

How do you think you benefitted from the experience?

“It was a great opportunity to volunteer overseas and live life closer to the Sri Lankan culture. A total contrast to staying in a hotel.”

What did you learn?

“Customs and cultures vary all over the world and should be observed and respected.”
