Women-on-the-RoadWomen on the Road’s Voluntourism page points out some of the potential pitfalls of volunteering (you may be making people less self-sufficient, or exacerbating disharmony in a community, or taking jobs away from locals).

It also provides ten questions to help you sort through the many voluntourism options so you can choose one that’s a good fit for you—and a real help for the people you’re working with.
