There are many great causes to support. But there is nothing quite so meaningful as going somewhere to actually help someone in need.
This inspired TRIP Canada to start volunteer building trips to Sri Lanka following the devastating tsunami of December 2004.
Through international volunteering TRIP provides Canadians with the opportunity to experience the adventure of going to help people in developing countries. Our volunteers spend two weeks rebuilding schools and homes in a small community in south west Sri Lanka.
You will have a meaningful experience, work hard, and contribute to a continuously improving community. Our program creates memories for a lifetime and enhances the lives of our volunteers by giving them the opportunity to touch the lives people as a global citizen.
Your TRIP Team Leader has been to the community in Sri Lanka ten times and will make sure you have a safe, enjoyable, rewarding experience.
