This experience trip could not have been anymore perfect! Sri Lanka is beautiful, the people are amazing and I have so many new friends.
In June 2018 I volunteered with The Mighty Roar on The Sri Lanka Experience. To me this project could not have been any more perfect. The Mighty Roar was very professional and efficient and offered outstanding prices.
The journey was smooth and upon arrival we were greeted enthusiastically by Karu and Hector. My project involved travelling the country and volunteering on a programme of my choice.
"I have recommended The Mighty Roar to friends from home and will continue to do so! I plan on using the company for myself in the future too."
In the first week, we were staying in various hotels around the country, all of which exceeded our expectations. This was an excellent time for everyone to get to know each other and get fully involved in the culture.
During the volunteering part of the programme, I mainly worked on the sea turtle programme where we happened to be building the hatchery for the turtles. This was an incredible feeling upon completion as it is now being used for thousands of turtle eggs. I also had the opportunity to help out with the childcare programme, night walks and beach cleans.
In our free time we regularly took trips into town or to the beach. While we were travelling, there were approximately 15 of us, this number then doubled when we arrived at the volunteering accommodation. As cliché as it sounds, I have made lifelong friends, who I still see regularly.
The local team were wonderful and were always there when you needed them. The volunteer accommodation was small but clean and comfortable with air conditioning.
I have recommended The Mighty Roar to friends from home and will continue to do so! I plan on using the company for myself in the future too.
