I have decided to try and make my blog posts a bit more accessible than exclusively being posted on Tumblr. I have two blogs on Tumblr, one which documents my progress with fundraising and vaccinations etc. for my volunteering trip to Ghana and a second one, which is effectively the same as this one, on which I plan to write essays on international issues.
My first essay is about voluntourism because I thought it appropriate considering my trip in August. I have seen much negativity regarding volunteering abroad an I thought I’d attempt to express my thoughts on the matter. I am new to writing things like this so if the text is too dense please persevere with reading and I will try to correct it!
Hope you enjoy!
