Going to another country to an 'orphanage' and giving your time to underprivileged children seems like a great idea. Such a kind and generous thing to do. Volunteering comes from the best intentions and a genuine desire to make a difference. When you arrive, it looks like they had been waiting for you all this time. A swarm of children runs up to you and surrounds you, tries to hug you or sit on your lap. They accept the extra food you buy them as manna from heaven. As you leave, while you are sad to leave the children behind, you are comforted by the thought that you clearly made a positive difference in their lives. Unfortunately, all is not what it seems. This book pulls aside the veil and provides insight into the unintended consequences of volunteering in 'orphanages'. As well as suggestions for ways in which you can support children in ethical and beneficial ways.
