Watch Voluntourism Doing More Harm Than Good News Video | Rethink Orphanages

“A TRAVEL company that has organised high school volunteering trips to overseas orphanages will end the program after 30 years amid fears “voluntourism” was harming vulnerable kids.

“The ABC reports the world’s biggest school-based volunteer company World Challenge will stop offering trips to orphanages in developing parts of the world, such as Cambodia, Vietnam, Mongolia and Madagascar.

“The company has partnered with advocacy group ReThink Orphanages, which claims the practice of tourists visiting orphanages does more harm than good to children and fuels a damaging and exploitative industry.

“In a statement, World Challenge said: “Many of our teams have made positive contributions through infrastructure development for orphanages and care homes in the past, but now is the time to acknowledge the specialist skills needed in this arena that are not suited to our teams.””

  1. Hei Susa ja kiitos tästä kiinnostavasta kirjavinkistä! Minulle tulee heti mieleen tuosta valokuvamaisesta kuvasta, että kirja olisi faktaa tai muistelmateos, mutta ilmeisesti ei sitten.

  2. Jessica SzenherOctober 10, 2012I work with Arkansas Lighthouse for the Blind, a nonprofit that employs visually impaired people, and I’ve been asked to contact you about a special event appearance. How do I reach you or your agent? Thanks!

  3. Good narration combined with beautiful pictures,gives us a feeling as though we were with you guys. Nature is great. It is awesome and makes us to wonder and make us believe that there is something else behind these creations. I like all pictures especially of those lovely kids. It is so natural. I could imagine how you would have felt to see a tea shop at such places.

    こんな私の話でも役に立つかなぁ?結婚13年目36歳です。 30で不妊治療開始。予算が尽きて体外へのステップアップが出来ずに治療を中止。その後は自主的にタイミングと基礎体温で消極的な不妊治療をしています。化学流産を数回して、医師にも化学流産出来ただけでも奇跡。とか言われちゃってたんですが、この間、初めて母子手帳を頂きました。成功の原因で思い当たるのは、去年から実家の過干渉が軽減され、振り返ると心穏やかな一年を過ごしたなぁ。と解放感を感じた事が大きいでしょうか?(笑)後は基礎体温も負担だったので、たまたま基礎体温を測るのをサボり、主人との仲良しの時間も妊娠を意識しないで居ようと思ったタイミングで当たりが!!13年も出来なくて、体外でも難しいだろうって言われた私でも妊娠出来たんですものまだまだ、33歳。もっと肩の力を抜いて。むしろ意識しすぎて、解消しきれないストレスを抱えてる方が妊娠しづらくしてるかも知れません。 意識しないように趣味を持ってって私も思ったんですが、それって結局 不妊を意識してるんですよね。それにね、私、今回の事で思ったんですが、妊娠したらしたで、元気に育っているのか? いつ、赤ちゃんが消えてしまうか?と、不安にさい悩まれてます。w下手に不妊治療で色々知ってる分、妊娠に自信が持てません。wダイエットコークさんの「五体満足…」の話は他人事でなく、今、自分が自分に問いかけてしまう不安で、他人から言われたらどんなに辛いだろう。と、思います。私にとって、無意識に妊娠判定がゴールで、妊娠を医師に認められたら幸せになれる。って思っていたみたいで、つわりと共にやって来た、中々妊娠出来なかったんだから、元気な子供を産むのは奇跡なんじゃないか?という不安と今、戦っています。不妊治療も辛いけど、私みたいに妊娠したらしたで不安になるかも知れませんよ?だから、今から疲れてちゃ、上手く行った時にはバテバテになっちゃいます。お休みするのも、継続するのもハイジさんの気持ちひとつですが、お医者様や旦那様とも話しておき、心が疲れちゃったら、体調を維持しつつお休みする方法を確認して、いつでもお休み出来る環境を作っておくと良いんじゃないでしょうか?通院していると自分のタイミングではないので、色々と焦ってしまうと思いますが、13年も不妊だったし、治療も諦めたのに、私でも自然に授かる事が出来ました。出来なかったら、出来ないなりの楽しい人生プランも立ててみるのも心のリラックスに繋がるかも知れませんよ?周りに焦らされないで、せっかくの自分の人生、辛いだけの一年を過ごさないように自分の治療ペースを作って下さいね。

    I’ve got no problem with minutes — in fact, I hardly use any. If my dad didn’t call me once per day, I’d probably use less than 10 minutes per month, in fact. I do have a problem with the $105/month cell phone bill, though. (That’s with the smallest minutes package available.)

    Bonjour Gwennys,Le CESS est délivré à l’issue d’une 1ère année complémentaire « infirmière hospitalière » réussie seulment si tu as réussi déjà ta 6ème année. La 7P « aide soignante » délivre le CESS mais n’est accessible que pour les étudiantes ayant fait précedemment une 6ème dans une orientation de même catégorie (ex. : « auxiliaire familiale et sanitaire » ).

  28. Hi Katie,Given what you are saying, I do think the 305 would indeed be your best bet for the price. The only advantages of looking at the newer 310XT would be for longer activites (greater than 10 hours), or underwater usage. And given you’re dislike while operating the iPod and training, I’d guess that the 405 would also drive you crazy.I actually just bought my dad the 305 last week for Fathers Day this weekend using the Costco deal, as it’s a pretty solid discount. Good luck!
