Welcome

Hello!

Welcome to being a partner with communities across the globe to make the positive long term changes they want, and we all want to happen. We founded Give A Fig Volunteering (UK non-profit) in 2015 in response to the many requests by people in government, education, and villages in Sri Lanka to support community initiated projects there. In 2017, in recognition of the impact of our work, friends encouraged us to set up Give A Fig, Sri Lanka NGO. In 2019, we began to offer projects in countries outside Sri Lanka, the direct result of people we know, or people hearing of us, asking us to support them.

Our Project model

  1. Maximising the mutual and reciprocal benefits of volunteering

  2. Growing people’s knowledge of our world

  4. Projects partnered with governments, universities, hospitals, and local organisations that make long term contributions

  5. Affordable prices, so that more can experience making a difference

  6. Putting your project money into the communities you join
