Welcome Sarah to the VoluntourismGal Team!

After chatting with lots of different parties about the fate of the blog, I decided the best thing would be to have Sarah Vandenberg join me as a fellow blogger! Most of you know her from the industry but in case you dont see below. Welcome Sarah!

  1. Hi ladies! I’d love to see a post on all of the masters and PhD research going on about volunteer travel. I feel like I get at least one email every week from someone doing their thesis or some academic research on volunteering, orphanage tourism, the impact of philanthropic travel on indigenous communities, etc etc…. would be great to get all of these linked up in one place or even just some sort of map of what is out there. Someone just connected me to Natasha (http://responsiblevolunteering.wordpress.com/) who has also done research on this… so maybe we could go to someone like her first to start of by writing a piece on researching this – and try to get a call for all others who are researching this to add a list of their topics as well. There must be SO much overlap out there – and would be so interesting to see what people are focusing on!
