Volunteer on the Sri Lanka Medicine High School Special project

Based in Colombo, Sri Lanka’s largest city, the High School Special Medicine project is an exciting opportunity for volunteers to experience and understand the medical systems in a developing country.

Volunteers will be under the supervision of a Projects Abroad Coordinator; and will spend time in the different departments of a general hospital, as well as visit a hospital specialising in traditional Ayurvedic medicine.

During your two or three weeks you will also attend a workshop on medical practices in Sri Lanka, and help directly tackle health issues in the area by taking part in a two-day medical outreach programme in a local community centre.

Projects Abroad will arrange a weekend trip to Kandy, Sri Lanka’s cultural capital, which is an UNESCO World Heritage site.

Every year, thousands of High School Special volunteers actively make a difference around the world. During their time abroad, they contribute towards achieving long-term goals and make a long-lasting positive impact on the communities where they work. If you want to know more about their achievements, read our 2017 High School Specials Impact Report.
