View Other Details
LankaCorps is a new and unique volunteer program for young North American professionals of Sri Lankan heritage who want to contribute to this dynamic, multi-ethnic nation.
Fellows are placed with host organizations identied by The Asia Foundation in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors. These individual affiliations enable the fellows to embed themselves in day to day life in Sri Lanka, interact with local colleagues in their workplace, travel and experience the country and engage with its people on their own terms. Their participation in local social, economic and cultural development initiatives through their host organizations and with a cohort of other fellows enables them to gain a deeper understanding of contemporary Sri Lanka while discovering themselves.
