  • Product Description
 

International Voluntary services have increased over the last couple of years. A lot of authors have written about this new phenomenon. One of the most visible forms of this phenomenon has been the emergence of ‘third world’ volunteer-tourism programmes, which seek to combine the hedonism of tourism with the altruism of development work. Such programmes make the practice of international development doable, knowable and accessible to young travellers. Unfortunately most of the writers have been focusing on the North-South Exchange meaning volunteers from Europe, United States, Japan, Australia and New Zealand travelling to Africa, South East Asia, and Latin America, the Caribbean and the rest of the developing world to promote development as well as international understanding through voluntary services. This book focuses on the South- North exchange which has been neglected since time immemorial. The book is striving to raise awareness about the flow of volunteers from the developing countries to the developed countries as well as the flow f volunteer within the developing world.
