The business consults with local residents and communities on the development and implementation of the programme

What does this mean?

  • It is important that the business does not develop the voluntourism program in isolation and that the local residents and community are consulted at all stages to ensure that it is relevant to the needs of the community.
  • Consultation meetings must be held with the community to get inputs into the programme and also to ensure that the final structure will also be acceptable to them.
