Does volunteering make any difference?
Its not an easy question to answer because a lot of volunteering does do more harm than good and many of those selling 'volunteer tourism' are simply glorified holiday companies, who care little for the impact they have.
But done correctly it can and does make a real and significant difference, so when your looking at booking ask a few simple questions of the company / charity to get a real sense of the impact you will have.
* Are they non profit
* Where does the money go - Check the small print the big organisations are very good at hiding the truth
* What do returned volunteers say about their experience
* What involvement do the local community have with the project? It should be led by them
* Does the organisation or partner have a long term sustainable strategy
* If your working in an orphange or care environmernt - check why it's there and what role it plays in the community
* Check the organisations child protection policies
Please do take time to check the facts you don't need to go with us but, bigger does not always mean better
