No matter what your expertise is, when your client walks in through your door you want to see them succeed. To reach their goals – and smash them. Once we’ve listened, taken notes and created a tailored treatment plan for our clients, here comes the tricky part. Implementation.
Voluntourism – is it the evil of our time?
It is a natural response to have compassion when we see suffering; it’s part of our human nature. Thanks to globalisation and access to the internet, the world is a much smaller place. To go a day without seeing those overseas who desperately need our support, is almost impossible.
So in response, you would love to help. To get amongst it. Possibly even see the world while you’re there.
Voluntourism is the perfect solution.
