Thinking about Voluntourism?
Have you ever thought of helping others while traveling? Have you imagined yourself doing charity during your trip? If your answer is “Yes”, then you should be informed that such tour is called ‘Voluntourism’.
Wikipedia defines Voluntourism as “travel which includes volunteering for a charitable cause”. The other similar names are volunteer travel, volunteer vacation and vacanteerism.
In fact, voluntourism is a much focused program of Ace the Himalaya. Nepalese people have grown up seeing many tourists being involved especially schools, organizations, etc. while holidaying.
So, it has been popular in Nepal since long and it has to be promoted further. in other words, Voluntourism is like killing two birds with one stone. You can enjoy the traveling experiences and at the same time, get close with the people.
One can teach the children at schools, play with them, cooperate with any social organization or join hands on any local activity.
