For the volunteering part, the accommodation during volunteering period is really good among the local accommodation, and the host families are very friendly. Also, the coordinator is really nice and helpful. More, the orphanage and the probation center is the place in which I really want to do some service work. We really have a great time and bring something useful for them. For the sightseeing part, Sri Lanka is fruitful of nice tourist spots. We went to so many wonderful place such as Galle fort Sigiriya rock and temple of the tooth. I recommend the trip wholeheartedly.

Overall, the living conditions were quite nice. 3 meals are provided everyday and the food was amazing, The location of the host family is right next to the beach, which was excellent for a good swim at the evening.The living conditions was okay, clean and tidy. The voluntary services arranged was quite well organized. Nonetheless, I had enjoy my stay throughout the whole trip in Sri Lanka.

The programme I joined planned to teach in orphanage and teenage girls' home. I think it is meaningful to join this programme. Although the language barrier and cultural differences make teaching really difficult there, I did feel proud to at least make them happy during the whole process. They treasured our visit to them as this gives them opportunities to know more about the outside world. Also, I think it is interesting to live in a host family. I could understand more about the local culture and communicate with the local family. I think Michael, my host, is considerate and helpful. His arrangement and accommodation are nice. And he is always willing to give advice to our plans and needs.

I have stayed in Sri Lanka for 10 days and it is certainly a rewarding experience. The host family is very friendly, which gives us plenty of information about Sri Lanka. The meals provided are nice too. The project I carried out focus on orphans and teenage girls. For me, it is an unforgettable experience because I don't have much chance to help them in my home city. Overall, both the project and host family are nice and I would recommend other volunteers to join.

I volunteered in Sri Lanka teaching English to some orphans and teenage girls. It was my first time volunteering abroad, and while my family and I had hesitation at first, the experience proved to be both enjoyable and meaningful.

I stayed with my host Michael and his family, who were always there to help and answer our questions and doubts. They took care of everything for us from meals to traveling around, and helped us plan our volunteer work and journey with much patience and kindness.

I also had the chance to meet other volunteers from Canada, France and Hong Kong, and we all spent our time in Sri Lanka as if we were members of Michael's extended family. I was glad to have fun with the orphans and teenage girls, and it was fulfilling to see them learn while we learnt from them as well.
