Volunteer stories

In 2018/9 we hosted 14 volunteers from Europe. They supported our work at the Galle Community Centre, three days a week over two months. Travelteer helped most of our volunteers and arranged their travel and experience with us.

Quote from Charlotte Lewell:

"As part of Travelteer I was lucky enough to be a part of volunteering at the newly founded project, ECSAT, for two months. I was mainly working with the vocational class, teaching the students basic English knowledge and skills. It was very rewarding for me to be able to go every week and gain a connection with such incredible people, knowing that the students have learnt something new and that I have made a difference to the students’ lives. I also got the chance to work with the teachers directly, helping them with their spoken English, which I hope will help them grow as people and benefit them in their future careers. I would like to thank all the staff at ECSAT for their support throughout my time in Sri Lanka and I wish them all the best with their development. I hope I can continue to be a part of an amazing organisation.” - Charlotte Lewell – Travelteer volunteer

In June 2019 two volunteers from Australia joined ECSAT from the Australian Volunteer Programme.
