Afhaal aan de luchthaven op Bandaranaike International Airport
The volunteers need to fly into CMB (Bandaranayake International Airport). First; you will meet the project’s transfer coordinator. He will meet you at the meeting point (paging area) in the airport upon your arrival and arranges your transfer to our center in Kandy or Ambalangoda according to the program you have booked. You will need to get a SIM Card as well. After passing through customs, make sure you stay on the same floor. Our Coordinator will be waiting for you in front of this entrance with a sign displaying the name of the project. He/She will not move to find you as they have firm instructions. Due to the many different personal plans and return flight times people have, the project found it logistically simpler to send participants to the nearest bus station and allow them to make their own way; whether it is to do more travelling or return to the airport. A Transfer back to the airport is not provided.
Accomodatie

You will be accommodated in our center which is located a few meters from the ocean (Dormitory style). The beach is closer to the accommodation where you can hang out with fellow participants. Furthermore, there is a refrigerator which you are welcome to use to store food and beverages. Safety lockers are available to store your belongings. Please bring your own padlock to be used.

Slaapzaal
Eten & Drank

You will be provided with three meals a day on weekdays and two meals per day on weekends. The meals are mainly Sri Lankan food, consisting mainly of vegetarian dishes including rice and vegetables. You can eat out at any of the local restaurants. 

Internet toegang
Onze excuses, geen toegang op de project site
Wat is er NIET inbegrepen?
Visum, vluchten, reisverzekering en vaccinaties zijn NIET inbegrepen in de programmakosten.
Vlucht tickets
De dichtste luchthaven is Bandaranaike International Airport (CMB) in Colombo. We assisteren u met het vinden van goedkope vluchten naar Sri Lanka.
Reisverzekering
Naar het buitenland reizen is een avontuur en het is best om goed voorbereid te zijn. Plots ziek worden of gewond raken, annulaties of diefstal - een reisverzekering voor Sri Lanka biedt zekerheid en is een meerwaarde.
Vaccinaties
Als je de intentie hebt om als vrijwilliger aan de slag te gaan in Sri Lanka dien je eerst medisch advies in te winnen alvorens je eropuit trekt. Kijk de benodigde vaccinaties na voor Sri Lanka.
