Testimonials - By Destinations - Sri Lanka

  • General
  • “Sri Lanka is a great size – it meant we could travel somewhere new every weekend to see a completely different side of the country, from mountains and beaches to rainforest! The culture is very relaxed, but the people very helpful.”
    Elizabeth Mitchell
  • “The most outstanding memory is the friendliness of all Sri Lankans.”
    Gill Barber
  • “It was a real mix of things from everyday crazy Sri Lankan life – tuk tuks, jam packed buses, people, people, people, random elephants walking down the road, amazing spicy food, to incredible scenery - beaches, waterfalls, tea plantations, paddy fields, to fantastic trips – white water rafting, visiting an elephant orphanage, seeing the ancient cities, to meeting wonderful people from a host of different backgrounds – volunteers, my host family, local staff and the teachers and children at my placement. The colours, noise, sights and smells made it an unforgettable experience, one full of amazing, crazy and wonderful memories!”
    Sarah Beetson
  • Care
  • “I grew very close to the children and we loved playing with them after teaching English. We still continue our lessons via mail – they are just so enthusiastic to learn, wonderful children. .. I have recommended Projects Abroad to so many people already and I have told everyone I know that they have to go to Sri Lanka. I had the best time of my life and I am so glad I decided to take a gap year.”

  • Medicine & Healthcare
  • Medicine
  • “One of my most memorable experiences was watching open heart surgery!”
    Caroline Gosson
  • “I spent most of my time in the Labour Room watching deliveries. It was fascinating and actually quite emotional! The nurses let me clean some of the babies, weigh, measure and dress them, which was a wonderful experience. There is a nice atmosphere there and also a very helpful junior doctor!”
    Olivia Hanrahan-Soar
  • Teaching
  • “The Sri Lankan staff were all fantastic; I was in regularly contact with them and they immediately sorted out any problems that I had. I was so impressed by the whole experience, and how well I was looked after for the whole of my time in Sri Lanka. On my birthday I was going back to my host family for supper and as I opened the door all the other volunteers and some of the staff jumped and shouted "Happy Birthday"! It was such a shock! My host mother had cooked all my favourite food, and Projects Abroad had got me a huge birthday cake. It was so personal and thoughtful!”
    Emily Smith
  • “I had an incredible experience while I was away. Sri Lanka is a beautiful country and I can’t wait to go back! I loved working in the school and now am really looking forward to becoming a teacher”
    Hannah Raines
  • “Before the start of my project the local staff were constantly in touch with me - if I ever had any questions then they were there! With Projects Abroad I had the ability to be completely independent, but with the knowledge that if I needed anything, or had the slightest problem, someone was only a phonecall away. Taking a gap year was probably the best decision I have made in my life and I am trying to encourage others to do the same!”
