So, kind hearted human; you want to volunteer abroad?
Before you pack your bags and head off on an epic adventure, here are five reasons why volunteering abroad isn't as awesome as you think it is:
1. NGO's, orphanages and volunteering companies aren't always ethical.
2. You're doing a job that you wouldn't do at home
3. You're teaching locals they aren't capable.
4. Kids learn to manipulate
5. You're Not A Saviour
