Just wanted to be sure everyone saw the latest Voluntourism article on PeterGreenberg.com, obviously an article dear to my heart: Orphanage Voluntourism: Helping or Hurting?
Daniela Kon just sent me a link to her most recent documentary – I wanted to get it on everyone’s radar. I see this as possibly being a great tool to give to volunteers before they head out with you, instead of handing them a piece of paper that addresses some issues they’ll face have them watch a documentary. You’ll have more informed volunteers and I think a better labor force to effect change.
