How Orphanage Tourism connects with us

Australians selflessly give their time, money, skills and experience to help others across a range of countries and sectors. Volunteering done well will benefit both the volunteer and the communities they serve. Research has shown that orphanage tourism (holiday tours and short-term un-skilled volunteering at orphanages) can encourage harmful practices, and can, in some cases, put vulnerable children at risk.
