WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I ARRIVE?
This project is unavailable during August 2016 due to the Perahara Season and Festival!
Upon arrival at Colombo Airport you will be greeted by a representative of Frontier-Sri Lanka and taken to your accommodation, where you will be based for the duration of your stay. Once acclimatised and settled into the Sri Lankan way of life, you will then begin your introduction week followed by your volunteer work.
Please aim to arrive on the Sunday before your project begins and depart on the Saturday after your project concludes. If you decide to travel outside of these dates then you will be responsible for any associated costs.
WHERE WILL I BE STAYING?
Your accommodation will be in a local family homestay, the perfect way for you to learn about the Sri Lankan culture, improve your language skills and experience the Sri Lankan way of life.
You will live with a carefully selected host with experience of working with volunteers. Your accommodation will be clean, secure and comfortable, and you will be sharing a room with fellow volunteers and will have access to basic facilities.
WHAT WILL I BE EATING?
Three meals a day are included in the programme and will be typical of Sri Lanka's cuisine, mainly consisting of boiled or steamed rice served with curry. Curries in Sri Lanka are typically made with meat, fish, vegetable and even fruit, and are made using coconut milk. A typical meal consists of a ‘main curry’, as well as several other curries made with vegetable and lentils and served with side dishes such as pickles and chutneys.
