In recent years there has been a growing trend of 'Voluntourism'. While the desire to help is a good one, this often does more harm than good. It is important to make informed decisions about how to volunteer and to give back in a smart and ethical way.
The Watchful Wanderer aims to provide people with information and insight into the places we travel, so that you can travel in a better and more socially conscious way. WW provides information about how to volunteer, where to volunteer and when not to volunteer. In the latter case, WW provides alternatives about how you can give back to the community in a different way.
