Volunteer tourism is booming. More and more people travel to the slums or work in relief projects during their holidays. They wish to get socially involved and therefore want to gain so-called authentic insights into the lives of other people. Who is helping whom? In Kolkata I have met tourists in their hotel rooms and interviewt them. Some of them work as longterm-volunteers for several months and some just for a couple of days.
