Description: The Blue Rose school was started in 1981 with few students along with a teacher. Presently the school caters for nearly 50 students which is it's maximum capacity to cater the Intellectually disabled children in the country. The school runs as a day school since we still believe the role of being with their own family makes the biggest and effective impact on their minds. The purposes of organizing this summer workcamp in every year with Blue Rose students are social inclusion, add new tools for non formal education, aware the society on Intellectually disabled people and share the knowledge and practices use in different countries and society follow in Intellectually disabled people.
Type of Work: The volunteers would be engaged with some renovation & cleaning work at the school premises. In addition we would organize more activities for the children combined with volunteers to enhance the deeper understanding for each other and to learn new cultures.
Study Theme: The selected theme is mental disability/special needs children and also volunteers are most welcome to conduct study sessions on themes of special interest. This would be a good arena to exchange the experience and knowledge the volunteers have in their own country and aware the others
Accommodation: Food and accommodation would be provided in the Blue Rose school dormitory (in two separate dormitories for men and women). The dormitory is consists of bunk beds with attached bathrooms. We will provide you the linen and pillows.
Language: Sinhala and Tamil are the two languages use in Sri Lanka. During the camp duration we advise all the volunteers to use English as the camp language to assure a better communication among all the campers.
