Anyone who knows me, knows how fond I am of Sri Lanka and its people.

This summer I shall be giving up my sunbathing time to take part in a volunteer project in Galle working with people in need of some help, love and care...

The projects I will be involved with include:

I shall be teaching and playing with girls with Special Educational Needs in a mainstream state school in Southern Sri Lanka.  They suffer from disabilities including Downs Syndrome, deaf/mutism etc and would benefit from extra help.

Some of the girls...

I shall also be helping at a nursery for street children.  This nursery takes children who live and sleep on the streets and also from the very poor area in which it was situated - a former shanty town. Many of these children have parents who are in prison and/or work as prostitutes.

I shall also be visiting an elder's home for men for an odd a game of cards or help them with art work, which apparently they enjoy!  (Perhaps they might teach me a thing or two!!)

The project also will be helping with Ananda School, an 11-18 state school, with a local nursery school, with adult spoken english/literacy classes, at a medical school and with training nurses, teaching people to swim in the municipal pool and teaching IT with two donated laptops.

The £280 I am raising will be donated over all of the projects, especially to purchase old laptops and sewing machines to help teach IT literacy and sewing skills.  The money also covers the costs of the project and go towards any materials I might use such as paint, English books etc.... 

None of it will go towards my travel or food or anything for me... all to the project :-)
