Is Voluntourism Selfless Or Selfish?

Every so often posts come up on my social media outlets showing some of my acquaintances posing with cute ethnic children in foreign countries. The individuals posing in these photos are often young adults engaged in what has become known as “volunteer tourism” A lot has been written on the subject, from expressions of support to scathing criticisms of the industry. 985 more words

The individuals posing in these photos are often young adults engaged in what has become known as “volunteer tourism” A lot has been written on the subject, from expressions of support to scathing criticisms of the industry. The Onion recently posted an article entitled “6-Day Visit to Rural African Village Completely Changes Woman’s Profile Picture”. I think this really hit the nail on the head as far as the central problem with volunteer tourism."

Seeking to help others who have less than ourselves is not a bad thing either, but what I find questionable about the volunteer tourism trend is the need for individuals who partake in it to overly publicize their experiences. To me what it feels like is “look at this picture of me with this cute kid I met in Africa who I paid to visit and will never see again”. While this is obviously not everyone’s attitude who engages in the volunteer tourism, it is hard to distinguish between individuals who had the money and a few free weeks over the summer, and those who genuinely want to help others and enlarge their world view. I understand that everyone these days is hooked on social media. We can hardly eat good meals at restaurants any more without ensuring that they make it onto Instagram. What that says is “look at me I did this”, “look at me I ate this”, but is there a line crossed when posting a photo that says “look at me I visited these impoverished people?"
