DESIGNED WITH LOCAL NGOs

The Programme has been formulated using a pilot programme (Nagenahiru Sports programme) that has been successfully implemented in several schools in the Trincomalee area. Travelteer and SPEED aim to build and strengthen the initial pilot programme through its volunteer programme of undergraduates from UK universities.

OPERATING IN 2 LOCATIONS

Travelteer will implement its volunteer led programme in two districts; currently already operating in Galle (South West) and launching this summer in Trincomalee (North East). Volunteers work in teams of up to four to plan and initiate daily activities for the programmes. Each volunteer team is assigned a specific school and volunteer coordinators help mentor short term volunteers to provide cohesion and continuity of the programme.
