Sri Lanka dog shelter volunteering

The life of a stray dog is far from easy in Sri Lanka. The vast majority of the public’s awareness of dogs (and animals in general) is still very limited. There are hundreds of thousands of stray dogs in the country who suffer from hunger and untreated diseases, some of which are shot, beaten to death or gassed. Most dogs live on the streets, and many are in an appalling state. Unsprayed females produce several litters of puppies every year, many of which are simply abandoned in front of temples or at the gate of the Dog Care Clinic. These puppies are usually too small to have even the slightest chance of survival unless provided with care. Most of them die of hunger or due to parasites ... Read more >

Sri Lanka community volunteering

As with many places, Sri Lanka’s primary and secondary school system is broken down into public and private. Public schools are funded by the government to offer children from poorer backgrounds free education. Private schools tend to attract students from more privileged backgrounds as well as better equipment and better standards of teaching professional. This is where our English-speaking volunteers come in. We work with a couple of public schools in the greater Galle area: a nursery/kindergarten and a secondary school. In addition to daily classes we also conduct evening classes at our own teaching centre in the rural community of Katugoda. For the kindergarten schedule we ask ... Read more >

Family volunteering in Peru

Family volunteering in Peru really is an adventure for a lifetime for those who seek a real cultural exchange for them and their children. While adults work as teaching assistants (or teachers if they are fully qualified) in a local primary school, your children get to take part in classes, sports sessions and meet new friends from Cusco. So, although volunteering placements are associated with gap year students or empty nesters, we have found that families give and gain so much during these placements also. Cusco, where you will be based, is famously the capital of the Inca Empire, and so while you aren’t participating in volunteer activities, you will have access to the ruins at Machu ... Read more >

Womens empowerment volunteering in India

Women Empowerment is a truly unique and rewarding program based in India in Kerala (South India). It is no secret that gender stereotypes adversely impact women, particularly in rural communities of developing countries like India. Women here continue to be seen as “dependent wives” or “supplementary earners” at best. Traditional familial responsibilities of a woman, especially as a mother/wife/homemaker, constrain them in their choice of employment, as do her family’s and society’s attitudes towards certain types of employment. Most women in Kerala are literate in Malayalam and whilst there is a high percentage of highly ‘qualified’ or ‘educated’ women there is relatively little space ... Read more >
