Hi, I'm Issy and this summer I am planning to spend 3 weeks in Sri Lanka. I will be involved in projects that aim to restore and support the environment whilst being involved in local projects to improve kids skills for their futures.
In the first week, I will be discovering the island of Sri Lanka. This Involves taking part in activities that promote team work, exploring the culture and travelling from Negambo through to Hikkaduwa. I will get the opportunity to climb the Ancient Fortress of Sigiriya; this massive rock is considered the 8th wonder of the world. It's countless steps to the top takes you to 370 meters above sea level. On the second week, I will be taking part in various programmes that help the environment. This entails me taking part in rainforest replantation, helping in a turtle hatchery.i will also be contributing to the environment with river and beach clean-up. On the third week, I'll be spending my time in the local primary and secondary school helping to develop and identify talent in sports through a partnered programme with SPEED. I'll gain experience with leading sessions, lesson planning and assisting coaches. This will create opportunities for developing skills from a selection of sports coached at "grass root level"
This will be the ultimate experience involving sights, culture and being a part of helping the environment. This opportunity will be exceptional, unbelievable and life changing which is only made possible through the support and information from Travelteer.
Thank you to anyone who donates towards the funding of this volunteering trip and for the Travelteer Impact charity.
