Voluntourism Segment on CCTV

This was my first time ever on CCTV America and we discussed the interesting yet controversial topic of Voluntourism. For those of you unfamiliar it is basically when tourists volunteer-hence volunteer tourism or Voluntourism. They actually pay to theoretically help out in developing nations and villages. There has been a tremendous amount of controversy concerning the ethical and economic issues surrounding Voluntourism. Here is my interview on Voluntourism.
