(As usual, brilliant pictures by @k.a.t.y.h.o.o.d, abysmal photographs model’s own.) This morning we set up a production line in camp putting together stationery kits - pencils boxes, ruler, sharpener, rubber, and notebooks - and then rode down the rode into a school. We had a Q&A with the children which was lovely, and told them a bit about ourselves and where we are from, which the camp’s director Ranvir translated. Then @reliefriders founder and leader Alexander led the whole school in an om to cleanse the place - lovely - and then aaaarggggg we were requested to sing a song, and our group rendition of Incy Wincy Spider was perhaps the closest I’ve ever come to having a naked stress dream in real life. @allieedwards__ (who knows @muddymayhem1 IRL, small world and hiiii!) and I were recruited for a handwashing demonstration. This sounds massively like teaching sucking eggs, but as the children use hands to drink and eat, it is apparently the easiest way to cut disease in half. They were big fans of singing Happy birthday while washing! Then we handed out the kits which was amazing - a lot of shaking of hands and namaste, but also a small child crying in horror at my face. “Fear,” said the class swot who was standing next to me, cheerfully. 👹🧟‍♀️🧛🏻‍♀️🧙🏻‍♀️. After this was all done, we went to have a look around the classrooms. I sat myself at the back of a class and oh my GOD it was maths - advanced algebra too, lol! Famed mathematician Kat Brown and Person Able to Count Good, sure. Luckily after a while the lesson swapped to asking me about English words, and about my husband, and if we had kids, and then I showed them pictures of Vegas, Harry and Ambridge and explained about journalism. Then we all shook hands and had a lot of group hugs and I nearly thought my heart would explode. This afternoon we are going to distribute goats. Goats for all! (The horses are having a lovely soothing afternoon off and being washed and generally chilling out after yesterday) #theurbanequestriandoesindia #reliefriders #reliefridersinternational #dugastau #voluntourism #ridingholiday #rajasthan #india #handwashing #coloursofrajasthan #school #humanitarian #dugastau

Consider how fortunate you are. Everyday, count your blessings ✌️💛 #voluntourism

In the beginning of the Dipo (Puberty Rites among the Krobos), each woman enters a house where they shed their clothing of their childhood and put on a new, mature set of clothing by their ritual mother. During this ceremony they dance to music to celebrate their passage into womanhood, and represent their families by wearing handmade beads passed down for generations. #itsdeeperthantravel

Life is better with palm trees. Life is also better if you do good!

Beads are said to possess the power to attract and evoke deep emotional responses. In addition, they are believed to be signs of success and affluence as well as spiritual well being. There are beads used to adorn babies during naming ceremonies, while others are worn by young adults to portray femininity during puberty rites. #itsdeeperthantravel

Fundraising is a way some people get to travel and experience various parts of the world. Whether it’s through an overseas university research experience, or through a church or school group, many students and adults alike raise money to pay their way overseas to work on projects. Have you ever volunteered abroad? #travel #voluntourism #volunteer #travelabroad #volunteerabroad #givingback

“We are very grateful for you to be with us. When you go back, remember us!” ❤️ We can’t forget the love, gratitude and warmth we were welcomed with when we visited Olkireruki School in the Maasai Mara area and brought supplies for the students at this remote school. Happy to say we are still in touch with the school officials following our visit and have connected them with needed support to hire one more much-needed teacher. They still need lots more support, ask us how to get directly involved!

"You have to give them hope; hope for a better world, hope for a better tomorrow.” Inspiring address quoting Harvey Milk from Chloe Setter, Lumos Senior Advisor on Anti-Trafficking, Modern Slavery and Voluntourism, at #trustconf18 urging world leaders to join the fight against orphanage trafficking. . . . #wearelumos #modernslavery #voluntourism #antitrafficking

One of the biggest lessons I had to learn was that I can't help everyone and that it's healthy to set boundaries and limits on what you can do. The president of @dooroffaith orphanage in Mexico, wrote a great piece for The Voluntourist on why overextending yourself isn't helpful. In his article he breaks down the difference between various orphanages and explains how the "crazy cat lady" term applies to those of us who have a heart to help others and have a hard time saying no. It's a really good and informative read so please check it out. The link is in my bio. #volunteer #volunteers #voluntourism #volunteerism #responsiblevolunteer #giveback #makeadifference #humantarian #payitforward #bekind #compassion #beablessing #inspire #instainspire #instalove #instapic #travelphotography #travelgram #instatravel #igdaily #igers #igtravel #orphanages #orphanage #jetsetter #globetrotter #travelawesome #travelandlife #wanderfolk #theoutbound

Did you know that it is NEVER OK to volunteer in an orphanage? Even a well run one. *** I'm here at the Trust Conference 2018 where the theme of the morning is orphanages as trafficking hubs. Across the world there are 8 million children living in orphanages and a whopping 80% of them are not really orphans at all. We have heard from academics in the field of children's law, trafficking survivors and spokespeople from organisations who are working to close orphanages worldwide. *** We were priveleged to hear the stories of four orphanage survivors including a Nepalese woman (pictured) who was forced to dance and sing as a child for voluntourists in an orphanage even though she had a family. *** Even when children are institutionalised in the best facilities they are still far better off in family settings. In orphanages children are four times as likely to be sexually abused and 10 times as likely to kill themselves at some point. Well-meaning tourists who volunteer in orphanages in developing countries need to become aware that the children's attachment followed by abandonment cycle is extremely harmful to their wellbeing, and that they are perpetuating the misery of the children they are trying to help (most of whom have families) while playing into the pockets of the traffickers themselves. *** #trustconf18 #humantrafficking #stoporphanagetourism #journalism #humanrights #travel #voluntourism #lumos #reuters #nepal #nepaligirl #nepalorphanage #orphanage #responsibletravel #children #global #reportagespotlight #seetheworld #womentravel #lovetheworld #everydayasia #everydayafrica #protectkids #rehabilitate #conference #knowbetterdobetter #london #trustconference

This shit makes me fucking sick to my stomach. Thank you @nowhitesaviors for bringing what several evangelical organizations across the Subcontinent are doing to light. Hey white people 🤗 if you don’t have a medical degree, don’t provide medical services! Don’t take people’s lives into your hands by pretending to be qualified! Your white skin does not qualify you to be responsible for the lives of children. Your white skin does not replace an advanced medical degree from an accredited university! If you don’t see an issue with this shit, it means you don’t view POCs around the world as equal humans, and you’re racist. If you think that each African country doesn’t have their own trained doctors and medical personnel, as well as hospitals, and they “need” you, you’re ignorant. If you wouldn’t do something in the United States, don’t try to do it abroad to gain experience or make yourself look like a savior. Ask yourself this: Would you let a young black person from an African country, with no previous medical experience, operate on or treat your white American child?! If that sounds ludicrous, then you can see how ludicrous it is that people like this woman are able to do this shit. In what world is it ok to post pictures of dead children on social media? To pose in a room of their photos where you were the one who could have gotten them to nearby medical facilities? If you wouldn’t be happy about that happening in your own country, it’s not ok for it to happen in another country. Want to know more or don’t quite yet see how sickening this is?
