About Volunteering

 
 
Ethical Volunteering is the website of Dr. Kate Simpson. Since 1998 Kate has researched programs and companies who send vounteers and interns to developing countries. She has published "The Guide to being an Ethical Volunteer“, which in three steps, provides help in finding a good organisation and which reviews the right attitude of participants concerning their stay abroad.
 
 
The website Volunteeringoptions.org, operated by Comhlamh (Gaelic for "Solidarity“), the Irish Association of Development Workers, provides interesting articles for volunteers and interns in developing countries. The articles have the aim to improve the understanding and perception of several issues and structures that volunteers and intern will most probably encounter during their stay abroad. Part of this are today's still prevailing manifestation of power relationship between the northern and southern hemisphere and topics about post-colonialism, racism and gender issues in developing countries.
