4. Honesty & Transparency.
Our travels and experience in the field have shown us the very best and worst of “volun-tourism.” So many people with the best of intentions allow their projects to be overrun by greedy corporate interests and end up exploiting the very people (and animals! -FP) they came to help. Excessive placement fees often put money in a businessman’s pocket, rather than putting food in a hungry child’s tummy. This travesty was our key motivation for founding Bamboo, and we promise that your donations will only go exactly where you intend them to.
