"Voluntour No More" was a project I helped to source and create for my Master's Thesis. Instead of a research project our program instead has us defend a Capstone Project — and mine focused on some of the negative impacts of irresponsible volunteer abroad practices and the organizations that turn at-risk communities such as orphans into marketable experiences. 
There are a lot of eye-opening anecdotes and testimonies within this project, but we also explored solutions and sustainable practices that people should strive toward and employ when enrolling in an overseas volunteering program. 
This is one of nine videos showing the good, bad and ugly of "voluntourism" — the rest can be found on YouTube.
