In June 2016 I will be travelling to Sri Lanka for four weeks. Whilst out there I will spend two weeks volunteering in a town called Ambalangoda. I will spend my mornings working in an elephant sanctuary where I will look after elephants of various ages with different medical conditions. Here, activities involve feeding, walking and bathing the elephants. In the afternoon I have the opportunity to teach English to the local children or work in an orphanage. Plan my Gap Year, the company through which I am volunteering, have set up an after school programme which allows children from families which were affected by the 2004 tsunami to learn English for free.
