Local residents and communities have the opportunity to benefit economically from the programme implementation

What does this mean?

  • In the points above, some of the aims of the voluntourism programme have been mentioned.  Another aim of such a programme is that it positively contributes to the development of local residents, community members and the community as a whole. 
  • This could include, for example, sourcing local housing and food for volunteers while they are participating in the programme.
  • The business should actively identify key opportunities within the programme which could directly benefit the economic viability of the community and its members.
