Who wants to be a volunteer?


Tongue-in-cheek video pokes fun at the rise in ‘voluntourism‘, but the message to each volunteer to-be is a serious one.

A video highlighting the problems with “voluntourism” has gone viral. A cross between the reality shows Who Wants to be a Millionaire and Survivor, the clip parodies a Western volunteer’s experience in Africa.

The group behind it, the Norwegian Students’ and Academics’ International Assistance Fund (SAIH), wants to challenge Western perceptions of the continent and stimulate debate about development.

One of the best ways to show whats wrong is usually a parody. Enjoy!
