Volunteer Tourism Industry Faces Being Axed

Thursday 14th September / presented by Chris Mason

For the last 30 years, around 150 Australian school children have been travelling to third world countries each year to volunteer in orphanages.
This is about to change as global company World Challenge announced they will no longer be operating after research showed the practice was doing more harm than good.

Advocacy agency ReThink Orphanages say the revolving door involved with such volunteer work was contributing in making the children’s abandonment and attachment issues even worse.

Co-founder and coordinator of the agency, Leigh Matthews joined us on The Mag to tell us more.
