Accommodation is in the beautiful home of the Project Manager. There are ensuite bedrooms for 1, 2 or 3 people. Please see the photos on the Volunteer Accommodation page.

On the rare occasions when the family home is full, volunteers will stay at a very nice house 10 metres away across the lane from Janaka's house. This house has 3 bedrooms, a sitting room and a kitchen. Volunteers living in this accommodation can participate in De Silva family life in exactly the same way as other volunteers.

The Volunteer Fee is $280 per week. This includes your Accommodation, Food, Drinking water, WIFI, Tea/Coffee making etc. 

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included, but volunteers will have to pay for their sodas, alcoholic drinks or snacks between meals. Volunteers should bring their own towels and toiletries. The volunteer fee does not include sanitary supplies and toiletries such as soap, shampoo, bath gels, hand wash, shower caps, hand/face or bath towels. toilet tissues are provided. 

Free WIFI is available.

Air conditioning if required (the $55/- monthly fee covers electricity costs).

Janaka has made that our volunteers can use a hotel pool with advance booking fee of Rs.1000/- per person. It’s just 3km from the volunteer house. .

Travel to work is at the volunteer’s expense. Tuk tuks are extremely cheap, so costs are negligible. We appreciate it if you use our driver Askar as much as possible. He is reliable and his rates are very good.
