Gap year programs | 5 no-go’s in volunteering abroad

It’s amazing how many people volunteer at unsustainable gap year programs abroad. Even after all the negative publicity about voluntourism, so many unsustainable projects are still running. We can put all the blame on the people behind the projects. But is that truly fair? Or do the volunteers have some responsibility as well? After all, they sign up for it.
Volunteering gives you the chance to live in a different country for some time, you can learn and experience and of course, explore. All of this can be an amazing experience if… it’s done right. And that starts with you!
