“Feedback on my time in Sri Lanka”

Written on: 08/05/2015 by kat_pickup (1 review written)

I have just come back from doing my 2 week midwifery elective placement in Sri Lanka with PMGY and cannot recommend it enough!! It's mainly observational but the staff are happy to answer any questions you may have and will explain procedures as they're going along. I was lucky in that I spent my time in both the private and government hospitals so was able to get a range of experience and see the differences between the two. Ashika is so helpful and will continually discuss with you what you… Read Full Review

“Faridabad 2015!”

Written on: 08/05/2015 by white.bryn (1 review written)

Had a great time with PMGY. I volunteered on the medical programme in Faridabad near Delhi and gained some amazing experience working with doctors to diagnose patients and distribute treatment in small communities. The host family were awesome along with the other volunteers. Even though I only went for 2 weeks we managed to organize time to visit Jaipur and the Taj Mahal. Overall it was well worth it. India is a must see!… Read Full Review

“Real Sri Lanka Experience 2014”

Written on: 05/05/2015 by delphin10 (1 review written)

After just finishing my A-Levels I'd always grown fond of the idea of travelling so I researched a huge variety of programmes/companies to try and find the best price/destinations/support etc. and Plan My Gap Year stood out so far from the rest. The hardest decision I had to make was where to choose my first destination because they all looked excellent, Sri Lanka was an area I'd never considered so I decided to do something different! The team could not be any more supportive, having never… Read Full Review

“Sri Lanka!!!!”

Written on: 04/05/2015 by ellaw39 (1 review written)

The experience in one word...amazing! Even better than expected! The best thing about PMGY In Sri Lanka was how relaxed and felxible it was! I thought i had just signed up for the turtle project but one morning i took part in the elephant project and most afternoons i helped at the school. I wanted to make the most of my stay and PMGY Sri Lanka helped me to do this! The turtle project was my favourite experience. The work was really hands on and practical and unlike some volunteer projects… Read Full Review

“4 weeks in Sri Lanka”

Written on: 02/05/2015 by alicia.bainbridge (1 review written)

I did 4weeks volunteering in Sri Lanka. 2weeks working at the elephant project and 2weeks at the turtle project. Thoroughly enjoyed both projects, although at the turtle project you did have to often ask for jobs to do once you had finished a previous task. Soon got into the routine and knew what tasks had to be done daily. The volunteer hour is basic but has everything you need. The food is great and living with other volunteers is great. Leaving was the difficult part as it felt like we all… Read Full Review

“Best experience ever!”

Written on: 30/04/2015 by holland405 (1 review written)

Went for 2 weeks to Sri Lanka and it was the best experience I have ever had! This beautiful country has a lot to offer; everywhere you look there was picturesque scenery from either the sandy beaches with the clear sea or the dense jungle with monkeys swinging around! The whole of the PMGY team were friendly and made the trip even more memorable, especially Ashika, Nalaka, Kasun and Manaj! I done the Elephant project which was amazing! Raja the elephant is massive and the whole time we… Read Full Review

“Sri Lanka”

Written on: 28/04/2015 by mollysutherlandd (1 review written)

I spent 3 weeks in Sri Lanka with PMGY and had the best time ever. If you're going away for the first time by yourself the support from the staff and other volunteers you become close with is huge and it eventually feels like home from home. Nothing is too much trouble for all the staff in Sri Lanka and they are amongst the friendliest people I have ever met, did not want to say goodbye! I did the elephant project and loved every minute, it was very well run with lots of things to do however it… Read Full Review

“YOLO in Cape Town!!!!”

Written on: 28/04/2015 by sammybrain17 (1 review written)

We had the most amazing 2 weeks in South Africa, Cape Town in March. It was such an amazing place including the culture, people and sight seeings. There is so much to do and see there even when doing a volunteer project. Our project was a kindergarten just outside of Cape Town. All of the staff and children were so welcoming and kind towards us we wish we could have stayed longer. I would 100% do another volunteer project with PMGY, anything you need or anything you are worried about they will… Read Full Review

“PMGY Vietnam”

Written on: 22/04/2015 by josh_mcenaney (1 review written)

I have recently spent three weeks volunteering in Vietnam with PMGY - I would say it was the best experience ever but I have also volunteered twice before with PMGY Sri Lanka which were equally as amazing!!! Starting with an efficient and welcoming airport pick up after a long flight, i was welcomed so warmly by all the local team in Vietnam to the volunteer house. The house was always a fun place to be round and kept clean throughout with great local Vietnamese (and the odd western) food… Read Full Review

“Romania Orphanage Volunteering - March 2015”

Written on: 22/04/2015 by rebecca_pickering789 (1 review written)

I joined PMGY in Romania in March to help on the orphanage programme for two weeks. I had no idea of where to go and when the PMGY recommended Romania, I just thought let's do it. I'm so glad I did. I had an incredible time in Romania! Everyone was friendly and welcoming! I met some amazing people and would defiantly recommend it as a place to go!… Read Full Review

“6 weeks in Sri Lanka!”

Written on: 21/04/2015 by clairerennie1 (1 review written)

I just finished volunteering for 6 weeks in Sri Lanka at the Tsunami school teaching English. I had an amazing experience and didn't want to leave! The children there are so wonderful. They are caring, loving, and so happy to learn English! The volunteer house I was staying in very quickly felt like home to me. The staff there are so welcoming and helpful. You really get to know the other volunteers and coordinators in your time there. I am from Canada but I now feel I have a second family in… Read Full Review

“My 2nd PMGY Experience”

Written on: 20/04/2015 by Roman8 (1 review written)

I have used PMGY on two different occasions, one of which was a single month trip to Sri Lanka in 2013 and then for a longer trip late last year in India (Delhi), Nepal, Sri Lanka (again.. :P) and Vietnam. In India I stayed with Vishy and his family, who are all very friendly and welcoming. I was there for 2 weeks participating in their orphanage programme, but also took part in the slum school project in the mornings. They are fairly flexible with what you can do in terms of the programmes… Read Full Review

“Sri Lanka - March 2015!”

Written on: 07/04/2015 by emmab22 (1 review written)

I can't thank Plan My Gap Year enough for a wonderful 2 weeks in Sri Lanka! This was my first traveling experience on my own and I can't explain how easy I found it to book the whole trip. I also went through PMGY for the flights and travel insurance; communication was great, they were always quick to reply and it was easy to pay online. I was lucky enough to travel with a few of other lovely volunteers on the same flight as me; we then shared a room at Lion House which was so much fun. Even… Read Full Review

“a wonderful experience”

Written on: 29/03/2015 by thea.lyngseth (1 review written)

I am so glad i decided to volunteer in Vietnam and do it through Plan my Gap Year. I was there for four months in Hanoi and honestly had the most amazing time, the staff, the other volunteers made volunteering and living in Hanoi better than i ever expected. I wish I could have stayed longer so I could have volunteered more and felt I had made more of a change at the volunteering place. Also to get to know the culture more and the staff. The food, the atmosphere and the vietnamese people are… Read Full Review

“Take me back!”

Written on: 26/03/2015 by Lauracoleman (1 review written)

Sri Lanka was without a doubt one of the best decisions I have ever made. I am 23 and have a full time job as well as a volunteer role in England and I needed something different. I travelled to Sri Lanka for three weeks on my own not really knowing what to expect and I had the trip of a life time! I made some amazing friends and memories and I'm sitting here typing this wishing I could go back right now! I worked on the elephant project which was so interesting - I came from waking up and… Read Full Review

“My time in Delhi...”

Written on: 21/03/2015 by Katep425 (1 review written)

I had a fantastic time and would highly recommend this programme. The handbook we had before was extremely helpful and informative, giving a comprehensive list of our kitlist. I chose to purchase the 'essentials' bag, including the PGMY t shirt - it is useful, however I would not recommend this if you are staying in Delhi during the colder months as I was (Jan, Feb), as the majority of items are unnecessary for the climate. Vishy and Kranti are very welcoming and friendly - I felt welcome as… Read Full Review

Nikkieve's Comment

Written on: 30/05/2015

I'm also considering going there over January and was wondering how the weather was. I've read a wide range regarding the averages then. Was it cold enough to need a winter coat on average or as someone not used to the extremely hot months in India was carrying a light jacket enough?

You won't regret choosing Plan My Gap Year, I certainly didn't. Before my departure they were very quick to respond to any questions I had and brilliant in organising every detail of the trip. This helped to ease any worries I had prior to going out. While away the Sri Lanka Plan My Gap Year team were incredible, I cannot think of a single fault. They are always looking to make each volunteers experience perfect. Ash is one is the friendliest people you'll meet and he makes sure that if you… Read Full Review

“PMGY Sri Lanka 2015”

Written on: 01/03/2015 by JaelynnPritchard (1 review written)

What an experience! Volunteering in Sri Lanka was by far the best thing I have done. To be immersed into a culture so different from your own is incredible. When I first landed at Colombo I was so excited to just sink my teeth in and get started and you pretty much get a glimpse on the drive to Ambalangoda. Arriving at Ashikas and meeting Thamari and Ranji was amazing, the welcome was so open and warm. They are amazing people, so generous and polite to let complete strangers into there house… Read Full Review
