    I'm doing research on volunteer tourism for my dissertation and I'm trying to get an idea of which sending organisations are most popular. Has anyone done a voluntourism project, or know someone that has? What organisation did you/they volunteer with?
    Thanks

    Maybe you are best contacting directory sites to see what popular projects are or asking on Facebook to see if any previous volunteers can help

    There is a website called visit.org where you can find tours and activities offered by nonprofit and community-based organisations. They do not offer volunteering opportunities, just tourist activities but you can search their directory to find organisations
