What does "volunteering" mean ?
Help is provided on volunteering basis, meaning on your own financial resources. Tea Leaf Centers cannot afford to cover your travel and accomodations expenses.
As per our own initial experiences, we can share that the return of your gift will be highly emotional, full of positive energy. We feel that we grew a lot.
There, people have an incredible thirst of learning pragmatic things to improve their life and help their communities. It provides a wise step-back with our crazy western lives.
We can assist you to find a local accomodation, transport.
As it should be great to also enjoy Sri Lanka best places, we can help you to organize a discovery of the tea plantations, and other srilankan pearls .This small island in the Pacific Ocean is full of surprises, whatever you like : budhist / hindu temples, ancient cities, jungle, safaris, hikes, beaches, snorkeling, whales watching, street food, sea food, etc ...
