The Zuri Project is joining forces with the Sri Lanka Wildlife Conservation Society to build a sanctuary for captive elephants called the New Life Elephant Sanctuary (NLES) in Sri Lanka. The NLES is a groundbreaking elephant welfare initiative that will provide high quality veterinary care and offer sanctuary to Sri Lanka’s working elephants that have spent their entire lives shackled in chains, exploited, neglected and abused for commercial profit.

“When you feel the suffering of every living thing in your own heart, that is consciousness.”

– Bhagavad Gita

REWARDS OF VOLUNTEERING

Participants are expected to stretch themselves. What they get in return is a deeper understanding of self, the rewards of participating in service projects, gain a new understanding of real-world challenges, and the ability to achieve individual goals and the goals of the group.

CULTURAL IMMERSION

Travel is the ultimate education. Cultural immersion experiences serve as a springboard to learning and leadership. Life happens when you allow yourself to be challenged, feel uncomfortable and be confronted with completely new perspectives. Everything you’ve ever wanted is one step outside your comfort zone!

WHY CHOOSE THE ZURI PROJECT?

Excitement, fun, adventure, lasting friendships and meaningful experience are just the baseline. We offer in-depth, substantive, transformative and impactful life changing travel.

It is said that life is a collection of great memories. This will be one of them.
