About the Book

Many volunteer workers have questioned their efforts and wondered if their actions were truly making a difference. Questions about the state of the world, making a positive impact, health, safety, and creating authentic, lasting change are at the heart of international volunteering.   
This book is a comprehensive guide for those who are currently volunteering or seeking to volunteer internationally. With inclusivity in mind, it demonstrates that with the right tools and knowledge, it is possible to make authentic, lasting change. It offers specific, timely knowledge for volunteering in an era when the world has never been better off, but where current development methods are still not reaching those who live in poverty.
