The Dark Side of Rich Kids Volunteering Abroad

Voluntourism is when primarily western, privileged do-gooders pay for the experience of doing charity work abroad. But according to this ex-voluntourist, the orphanage she thought she was building was actually disassembled and remade throughout the night.

Not only that but children were dirtied up to make them look poorer to add to the voluntourists' experience. Children were made to sing and dance for them - and worse.

We give an inside glimpse into this sham world, where people pay for the experience of charity without actually helping locals - and often even making their lives worse.
