Richard Edwards of Planeterra recently did an interesting interview for the WorldNomads.com Responsible Travel blog, one of his comments struck a particular chord with me and I wanted to throw it out to everyone.
How much does a project’s location dictate how successful it is? Here is his quote, “We have been less successful when asking travelers to projects that aren’t on routes that are visited during tours, even though the project may be doing important and worthwhile work.”
What do you think? Agree? Disagree? Anyone done anything to help generate volunteers in truly off the beaten track locations?
