Orphanage Volunteering Special Focus


To launch our special focus looking at orphanage volunteering, we are participating in and supporting the #stoporphantrips Blogging Blitz

Every day for 30 days, a blogger is writing a post on this issue on their site. We republish all the posts here.

Anyone who supports the campaign is encouraged to share these posts using the hashtag #StopOrphanTrips

2 quick ways to help

1: Sign the Avaaz petition calling for travel operators to remove orphanage volunteering placements from their websites by the next World Responsible Tourism day at WTM in London in November 2016.

2: Share any article you find interesting with friends and contacts, using the hashtag #stoporphantrips
