Volunteer Tea Pick
As part of our amazing volunteer programme, we offer volunteers the chance to live the life of a tea picker for half a day.Volunteers visit a local, private and ethical tea estate where they are allocated a tea picking lady as their mentor. They work alongside the tea pickers, developing their skills and understanding just how tough life is on the tea estates.After lining up with the workers to weigh their tea, volunteers are told how much they would have earned – this is, of course, shockingly little. The amount earned is added to their mentor’s pay packet, a lovely bonus.If possible, our friend and the owner of the Kelaniya Tea Estate, Mr Balendran, will then organise a tour around the working tea factory (and maybe even a cup of tea!)Volunteers gain an incredible insight into life on the tea estate and fundraise to support the work of Tea Leaf Vision centre – a massive win/win.This fundraising initiative allows us to cover all costs associated with planning and managing our volunteer programme, whilst enabling volunteers to help and support us without paying through the nose for the opportunity.
