Volunteer with confidence. Give A Fig are trusted education partners of the Sri Lankan government.

12 Schools in North Central Province where we are based teach German to pupils from aged 14. You can join us from 2 - 12 weeks, and support children in schools who have chosen German as a foreign language, support them and their teachers, and run German language clubs for those younger than 14. We also run German language holiday clubs.

We welcome as volunteers complete beginners to those who are retired teachers.
