In this episode, Nabilah and Sara are speaking with Pippa Biddle.
In 2014, an essay titled ‘The Problem With Little White Girls, Boys and Voluntourism’ went viral.
In it, the author shared their experiences previously engaging with voluntourism, and revealing the detrimental impact it was having on vulnerable communities across the world.
That essay belonged to Pippa, and now, some years later, she’s the author of the recently released book, ‘Ours to Explore: Privilege, Power, and the Paradox of Voluntourism’.
We’re speaking to Pippa to help us unpack what happens when the tourism industry meets international development, its dangers to your local and global community, and how to more meaningfully engage with volunteer work.
