    schema:description "Some people want a meaningful role when they travel. They want to explore the world and help the less fortunate even if they don't possess specialized skills. That's where voluntourism comes in: a mix of both travel and volunteering. Blumenfeld relays examples from his own travels from Las Vegas to Nepal. He shows how to identify the right location and volunteer situation, how to go about planning trips and preparing for activities, how to reach out, how to help. -- adapted from introduction"@en ;
