Despite the rich cultural and natural beauty, hunger and poverty still staggers the development of Sri Lanka. Thousands of children are forced to desert their home in search of job and food to nearby cities. Moreover, 20-year of civil war on the one hand and destructive Tsunami of 2004, on the other, have left many children homeless, dejected and orphans. Local social workers and organizations have instigated many orphanages to provide these children a bright future and to protect them from the neglect and violence of miserable street life. RCDP-Sri Lanka in collaboration with local orphanages and children support organizations invites compassionate volunteers to work for these displaced, abused, abandoned and needy orphans to lead them a happy and prosperous life. If you have a strong enthusiasm and willingness to create a positive impact in the lives of these innocent children, your helping hands are always welcomed solely for the advantage of the orphans.
As a volunteer joining in orphanage program in Sri Lanka, you will primarily support the needy orphans and children for their overall development. Volunteers support children in teaching basic conversational English, health, sanitation, music, art, dance and other physical activities. You will teach English 3-4 hours a day for the children. You can also help children with their homework and monitor in academic activities. You can take the children for shopping or visiting to different places in free time. Most importantly, your love, care, affection, inspiration are indispensable for them. You can also involve in fund raising activity for the project to safeguard the life of these orphans.
