I'm Michele Liptai from Switzerland, I'm 19 years old and I stay in Galle with Michael Ferreira's family.
I really love my life here, I felt at home from the first second I arrived in Michael's house!!! The whole family is so open and they help us whenever they can. They show us places you would never see as a 'normal tourist', for example a wonderful Batik or a secret beach...
Michael also arranged a bike for me, so I can go to the orphanage by bike and we went on a four-day-trip with him, which he organized, it was amazing...
Everything is so natural and familiar when you stay at Michael's house, I learned so much about the culture, the traditions and the religion in Sri Lanka and you get to know many friends and relatives from the family.
I also had the opportunity to join a film project with friends from the family, it's one of the best experiences I've ever made!!!
Also the location is a dream, the house is right next to the sea, so we can go swimming whenever we want and it's very easy to get to Galle Town by walking.

The work in the orphanage in beautiful, it feels so good to make all the children and the babies smile and to help them in their daily life...

I would strongly recommend this country, the organization 'RCDP Nepal', the work in the orphanage and above all Michael's family, it's wonderful...

I volunteered at Ruhunu Children Ophganage in Galle, Sri Lanka. I stayed with a local host family. The organiser and host father, Michael was outstanding. He helped me and the other volunteers in every aspect of our trip. Explaining the Sri Lankan culture, taking us on a 4 day trip around the country visiting many historical sites, and organising SIM cards. He know a lot about the area, making it easy to get around, visit the best places and shops. His extended family were great fun to be around. The family was always around chatting and sharing a meal. It is a very homely atmosphere. Everything was flexible, from hours spent volunteering at the the orphanage to going on trips or going out for dinner. I met a few other volunteers while I was here and we would catch up for a meal or go to the beach. The host mother was a fantastic cook and I loved the Sri Lankan food. She would cater for vegetarians or those who can't tolerate much spice. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone. RCDP Sri Lanka is a very affordable, safe and flexible volunteering option.
