The Focus Of Our Work
children, village development, structural development, education, preschools, water and sanitation projects, agriculture, women’s empowerment, and conservation.
In November 2017, following support from the people in Anuradhapura that we work with as Give A Fig Volunteering, we registered an NGO in Sri Lanka, named GIve A Fig. This is quite an extraordinary feat, and rarely achieved, demonstrated by the fact that no one really knew how to register an NGO with some non-Sri Lanka as its officers.
Our President is Priyantha Rathnayake, who has been an amazing support and advisor to Give A Fig Volunteering. The General Secretary is Paul Ellmes, and the Treasurer is Tracey Deane.
All money for development projects given by Give A Fig Volunteering group, and individual donors goes into the NGO’s audited accounts.
That donated money is spent on the projects that our donors expect that money to be spent on.
If you’d like to carry out a project in Sri Lanka as apart of your volunteering - such as toilet building, or renovating and equipping a pre-school - please contact us for a breakdown of costs and a time scale for completion within your volunteering period.
Fundraise For Us
You may not be able to join us in Sri Lanka, but you can still make a big difference. We need fundraisers, people who can apply for available funds (we can point them to you), by writing applications. In 2019, Give A Fig Volunteering will be teaming up with organisations two other countries, to offer volunteering, as well as support for their fund raising. If you think you’d like to help us change the world for the better for people, please get in touch.
