Experience for Yourself...

The joy and honour of serving those who don’t have the luxuries we do, in impoverished communities where culture is binding and deprivation real.

'Every man feels instinctively that all the beautiful sentiments in the world weigh less than a single lovely action.'

James Russell Lowell

Build Trip

Volunteer to join one of our Annual Ladies / Lads / Mixed Trips - where you'll help to fundraise a project, then GO and actually help BUILD it with your own two hands.

School Trip

Create a tailored trip for your school group. Get your kids involved with a building project, painting, or workshops with our schools in Jaffna and Colombo.

Corporate Trip

Get your Business involved! Whether to fund Small Business Grants in Sri Lanka, or fundraise for a Build and send a delegate team out, we’d love to work with you. Ideas Welcome!

Long-Term Placement

We’re looking for those who share our heart, who might be interested to spend a longer period of time in Sri Lanka - teaching English at our partner schools, organizing Builds, and assisting with our Child Sponsorship program. 

'I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.'

Edward Everett Hale
