Travellers Worldwide offers two extremely worthwhile teaching projects in Sri Lanka. You will be involved with children from the poorest part of the population, and your mission will be to improve their level of English to give them the best opportunities to find jobs in the future. The level of English has dropped in Sri Lanka, but it is still an essential skill for job-seekers. This gives an enormous advantage to privileged kids but leaves out the poorest ones.
You will have the choice between teaching in a number of schools in Ja-Ela and living in the rural Wasgamuwa, near a national park. Both of the placements are in critical need of volunteers and your help will be immensely appreciated!
