Sri Lanka childcare volunteers

Get ready to experience the beauty of Sri Lanka while helping on this hugely rewarding project. You will play a crucial role in interacting with the children keeping them entertained and happy, while building their confidence and teaching them basic English and life skills.

Explore Sri Lanka’s famous palm tree lined beaches, take a train ride of a lifetime, walk through the jungle and fully immerse yourself into the Sri Lankan culture and way of life. Along the way you will make lots of new friends and will make a real difference to the lives of young children.

"Going away to Sri Lanka with The Mighty Roar was an amazing and valuable experience that I would recommend to anyone with a sense of adventure and a desire to do good. The childcare work I did was fun, exciting and rewarding."

We work with several day care centres and kindergartens in the local area, where you will offer invaluable assistance to the local staff and provide the care and love the children need.

You’ll be involved in a variety of activities such as playtime, meal times and basic teaching and you can be sure that the children and community you help will be extremely grateful for having someone there to support and care for them.

We encourage you to get as involved as possible by helping with all of the day-to-day activities where you will primarily be acting as a carer. You will be instrumental in keeping the children engaged and happy, where you will join in with games and other fun activities and hopefully introduce some of your own new ideas along the way.

As a volunteer you will become a big brother or sister to the children, working alongside local staff to assist with teaching and caring for the so children that attend everyday.

The children will be sure to fill your life with laughter and unconditional love and you’ll be overwhelmed by the energy that they show you.

Located along the west coast of Sri Lanka that is famed for its beautiful beaches, this unique programme will allow you to enjoy the ultimate slice of Sri Lankan paradise.

You will be staying just a stones throw away from palm tree lined beaches that have crystal clear waters from the Indian Ocean. You will get to explore Sri Lanka’s rich cultural heritage, discover their stunning coastlines and live within the local community where everyone is so friendly.

There is no better way of helping than by volunteering at one of the community run day care centres. Depending where you choose to volunteer, there are between 10 and 50 children that attend, all between the ages of 2 and 6 years old.

With limited resources and staff, we need volunteers like you to help take some of the burden and ensure that proper care and attention can be given to everyone. As you get to know the children and their routines you will soon develop a special bond with them.

You will be able to volunteer from Monday to Friday, in the mornings between 9am and 11:30am and again in the afternoons between 2pm and 4pm. You can choose to do just half days (either morning or afternoon) and spend the rest of your time exploring Sri Lanka with the other volunteers.

The real Sri Lanka Experience

Seeing all of Sri Lanka and meeting the amazing people there could have not been any more perfect. An incredible 3 weeks that I will never forget.

Samantha's story

Volunteering with my family in Sri Lanka

My family and I chose to volunteer in Sri Lanka last August for 3 weeks. We wanted to introduce the children to volunteering so that we could all help give something back to a local community.

Sue's story

Sea turtle conservation in Sri Lanka

My daughter and I volunteered with sea turtles last August and we would 100% recommend The Mighty Roar; we have even looked at doing another project in the next year.
