THANK YOU, gracias, hvala for sharing this viewpoint and article on the volunteer logue. Very few people are willing to put themselves out there as you did and explain a side of things that is, frankly, unpopular. It's a complex topic, and I think there are many sides to it, but plenty of people just don't have any idea how something done in the name of goodwill can have negative consequences. It can. And while I don't think it happens every time, and I don't think voluntourism is the only arena in which it happens, I think people need to be aware of it before the situation can change.

Sorry, belated answer to your note but you're quite welcome. Thanks for the opportunity.

I think that if you check your email, you will find that I did indeed answer your comment.
