Dear friend of Serendib,

Serendib is pleased to announce the inauguration of its Students Helping Students program, an exciting and innovative opportunity for young students ages 18 and older in the United States to spend two weeks in Sri Lanka as teacher assistants of Serendib in the country's 8th Annual Residential English Education Camp to be held in August. 

Imagine spending a portion of your summer months helping the underprivileged students of Sri Lanka and becoming a part of this magical Camp experience.  You will join the other talented and dedicated members of the volunteer team that will help us to empower the youth of Sri Lanka through education. 

The package price for this community service excursion is $1,600.  This figure is inclusive of roundtrip airfare transportation from your city of origin, all necessary ground travel while in Sri Lanka, and all meals and lodging during your two week stay.  We plan to depart from the United States on August 4th and return on the 18th of August.

The entire proceeds of each package price paid will be donated to Serendib-Sri Lanka to enable them to conduct their English Camps in Sri Lanka.  If you are interested in this unique chance to positively impact the lives of these students and teachers, please send an e-mail to: and we will forward a complete information packet to you.

We hope to see you with us on the first annual Students Helping Students tour in August.  We thank you for helping us to make a difference in the lives of these children.

With best regards,

The Serendib Students Helping Students Team
