About the Program
An organization like Habitat would be nothing without the continuous dedication and hard work of volunteers. We want to make volunteering for us not only a hugely rewarding experience for the beneficiaries of your hard work, but also for you-a mission that will live with you throughout your lifetime and help you to inspire others to continue the good work you have done.
Overview of Volunteer Programs
Individuals: We are not worried how much time you can spend with us. It is far more important for all involved that the time spent is spent well. Be it a short or long term project you can walk away with your head held high. Your work with us in building homes for those who desperately need them will changing lives, inspire, and create light where before there was only darkness. You will be making a positive contribution to the world.
Groups: Achieving life changing and confirming goals can only be more rewarding when doing it with your friends, class mates or members of your community. By bringing a sense of community and fellowship to the project you are working on, others will feed of this, enhancing the whole experience for all involved. A lifetime of memories to be shared.
Corporate Training: Nothing builds a sense of purpose and togetherness in the work place as doing something as a team,especially when it has nothing to do with the job directly, but relates to it much indirectly! Motivation, teamwork, quick wit, laughter and tears, ever changing scenarios and situations, and basically getting stuck into doing hard work that has immensely good repercussions for the recipients. At Habitat local and international businesses have embraced the opportunity to partner with us and leave staff and management feeling rejuvenated and inspired for when they return back to their daily duties.
Student Chapters: As the world continues to open it's eyes to problems far away from their doorsteps, we have created a program that allows students to fully participate with us, without encroaching upon their studies. You will have the chance to learn leadership and project management skills, interact with a new societies and learn new customs, make friends for life and enjoy the wondrous experience that is living in Sri Lanka.
