Experiential Learning Projects in Sri Lanka

Background of co-organiser

Service Civil International (SCI) Hong Kong

Service Civil International (SCI) is a volunteer organisation dedicated to promoting a culture of peace by organising international voluntary projects for people of all ages and backgrounds. The organisation consists of 45 branches and an ever growing number of partner organisations in 85 countries.

They believe that living and working together with people of different backgrounds helps volunteers to break down barriers and prejudices. It allows them to experience a world of mutual respect and understanding. In this sense, volunteering can be seen as a way of life, a demonstration of the possible reality of a peaceful and cooperative world.

SCI offers a variety of volunteer opportunities to people, such as short, mid-and long term projects, but also the possibility to become active for a local branch or participate in a seminar or training.

Throughout the years SCI has also organized, coordinated and joined many international campaigns that aim at raising people’s awareness about global and local issues related to peace, migration, climate justice, active citizenship, human rights, development education, volunteering and more.
