Philanthropic travel is booming, hence the existence of this grant. Recent estimates suggest that volunteering on vacation, or 'voluntourism', is growing at about the rate that cruising was in the 90's. It's hot; it's in vogue; it's what people want to do. But it's also under extreme scrutiny. Is this the best way to engage international development? Is this what community partners want? How do they see us? How are we affecting them? I want to step back and provide some perspective on our urge to do-good overseas by answering these questions for Canto Grande. In doing so, I hope to give voice to these Peruvians and to re-evaluate our position as well-intentioned westerns in the developing world.See Idea Details remind me
