International: Tourism crimes! Volunteering and visiting Orphanages when traveling
ETurboNews – September 22, 2017
It’s human trafficking, child abuse and a crime participants often don’t even know they are part of it. It happens in Myanmar, Nepal and other countries. An Australian adventure travel company has a strong stance on child protection and has just announced a new charitable partnership with Australia-based child protection charity Forget Me Not. This reinforces the company’s commitment to end orphanage tourism and help reunite thousands of children with their families. The new partnership is kickstarted with an A$90,000 donation, made through The Intrepid Foundation.
