The resource centre which is the focus of the project, was given to SERVE our NGO partner in Sri Lanka in 2017 with AidCamps subsequently funding its initial refurbishment. It now provides a place of safety in which local children can study and play whilst also providing support to local mothers through a women's self-group.

Our project aims to double the size of the Centre in order to provide additional support to local children and families and to extend the range of services it provides.

The Itinerary

The draft itinerary provided above is for information purposes only. The itinerary is subject to change and should be used as a guide only. However, the format of working Monday to Friday and visits to other projects as well as cultural and heritage locations during free time, and longer breaks at the weekend, are typical of an AidCamp project.

Additional Information

Accommodation when working on the project site will be at SERVE's office compound. All other accommodation will be in a range of local hotels and guest houses.

The period of the project is during the coolest and driest season though some changes have been noticed in recent years. Daytime temperatures should be around 30ºC so pack "hot" however be aware that the west coast area has also been overcast on some days during recent visits, with a number of heavy showers, so be prepared!

Volunteers are responsible for booking their own flights and arranging their visa, insurance and any vaccinations as required. Guidance is provided wherever possible.
