Thinking of traveling the world or volunteering abroad?

You might soon become one of the millions of people who participate in ‘Voluntourism’ every year. The unregulated sector is becoming increasingly popular with young, Western backpackers seeking to make a positive contribution to the world around them.

Well meaning voluntourists spend time in the poorest countries in the world building schools, digging wells and teaching English under the auspice of ‘Making a Difference’. But does their involvement do more harm than good?

Tie Up The Lion explores how young people’s motivations to ‘save the world’ often have alarming, unforeseen negative consequences on the lives of the very people they are trying to help. Some voluntourists unwittingly become involved in placements that exploit children, line the pockets of unscrupulous for profit companies and wreak havoc across local communities.

This Kindle Book will help you to avoid such placements and discover positive, impactful ways in which you can contribute to the world around you.

Some of the topics covered throughout this book include:
