LankaCorps: Engaging Youth of Sri Lanka Origin in Sri Lanka’s Post-War Development


LankaCorps is a unique volunteer program for young professionals, between the ages of 21 and 29, of Sri Lankan heritage who want to contribute to this dynamic, multi-ethnic nation. After decades of war, The Asia Foundation believes these fellowships will help contribute to the island’s long-term recovery.

Fellows are placed in six-month assignments with established businesses, nonpro ts, and government departments. They participate in local social and economic initiatives and organizations, while discovering themselves and gaining a deeper understanding of contemporary Sri Lanka.
