Book NowAsk a Question

How do you think you benefitted from the experience?

“I have seen a country that is less economically stable than mine and it has made me think differently about what I have (how lucky I am). It made me start talking to new people and get to know some really lovely people.”

What did you learn?

“I have become more confident in group situations where I don’t know anyone, and I have learnt to be more relaxed around people I don’t know too well.”

What did you like about the VoluntEars programme?

“I love the balance between volunteering and seeing Sri Lankan sights. I liked how supportive the VoluntEars staff were, when we went anywhere they would always put us at ease and make sure we were comfortable.”

What did VoluntEars do well?

“Making sure the trip was organised and structured so that we knew what we were doing each day. Also they managed to bring a group of people together who would never have met and made it a really enjoyable experience.”
