The projects take place in Kandy, a historic city located in the heart of Sri Lanka, surrounded by green hills and picturesque landscapes. It is one of the country's major tourist and cultural destinations, thanks to its significant cultural and historical heritage, marked by the presence of important temples and the Esala Perahera festival, one of the largest Buddhist festivals in Asia. During this festival, traditional processions and dances take place.

The volunteer house has a safe member staying in the house at night and there is an 8:00pm curfew on weeknights and 12:00pm on weekends at the volunteer accommodation.
