Having volunteered with Uniterra in university through Students Without Borders in both Ghana and Botswana, I am back again, this time in Sri Lanka as a long-term volunteer. I am excited to put my international development degree to good use over the next year in my role as a Volunteer Support Officer based at the WUSC Sri Lanka office in Colombo.
In this role, I am a part of the Uniterra team, working to welcome and orient Canadian volunteers new to Sri Lanka as well as provide ongoing support throughout their mandates in the country. It’s an incredible opportunity to engage with volunteers who have passion for their work and also to explore the beautiful island of Sri Lanka.
