#Africhat – Wed. January 21st – “Volunteer travel in Africa”

#Africhat – The Africa Travel Twitter Chat – every 3rd Wed. of the month

#Africhat is an opportunity for Africa-minded people to periodically converse about a variety of topics related to travel within the continent.

Topic – ‘Volunteer travel in Africa’

  • Wed, January 21st, 2015
    • 11:30 AM Eastern US Time
    • 4:30 PM GMT
    • 5:30 PM West Africa Time, 6:30 PM Central Africa Time, 7:30 PM East Africa Time

This month’s topic is in light of this week’s release of Adventures Less Ordinary: How to Travel and Do Good, an e-book about the merits and perils of many established “voluntourism” activities, as well as practical advice for ethically-minded travelers about how to be sure of making a positive impact.

We join the growing chorus of people seeking a way to #MendNotEnd how volunteers can do good when they travel and hope you will join us in discussing its impact in Africa.
