Today the volunteers all moved to a new worksite, new families and new experiences.
Volunteers experience in TRIP Canada Program. Our volunteers share some of their experiences and memorable photos.
Today the Sri Lankan workers seemed more comfortable directing us and making their expectations known.
All of the 17 volunteers arrived at Moonstone Villas, our home for the next 12 days, Sunday afternoon. Jet lag aside, Monday morning everyone was up at the crack of dawn for breakfast, a briefing and 7:45 departure to our three worksites. We were all excited to get going.
When Team 15 starts building April 15th, a number of new volunteers will join the TRIP Canada family.
There are 17 volunteers packing their bags and finalizing plans for the trip to Sri Lanka.
2019 is going to be a much better year for many children and families thanks to you. With donations received in the last two weeks of the year, TRIP Canada hit its 2018 fundraising target. We are now able to kick-off all of the projects we shared with you last year.
Volunteering is glorious, hard work, inspiring, challenging and rewarding. You will laugh, you will cry and you will come home knowing you made a difference in someone else’s life.
Several years ago we learned about a nearby orphanage that was started as a home for children who lost their parents in the 2004 tsunami. As there is a continuing need in the community for safe shelter and a nurturing environment for more children, DWC’s TRIP Canada agreed to complete a second building.
Team 15 – April 2019 – Lots to Build!
Get involved, make memories and be part of the DWC TRIP Canada legacy.
18 volunteers…3 families ready for new homes….4 rooms to finish at Canadapura orphanage. 2017 was a terrific year with much success in TRIP Canada’s building initiatives, education programs, fundraising and volunteer development. With this momentum, Team 14 has an incredible opportunity to complete 4 building projects in April. The team is a mix of experienced volunteers – 2 marking their 10th anniversary – and new people keen to make a difference. They are coming from western Canada, the US and Ontario.
