Volunteer Organisations are useless in the times of internet. They are only existing because they want to make quick and easy money. There are plenty of smaller or bigger volunteer organisations. One of the biggest is PROJECTS ABROAD. In 2011 alone this Organisation made more than 2 Mio. $ profits. Projects Abroad is a private company and not an NPO. Â If one looks deeper into these organisations, one will soon find out, that they do not really care about the poor. They want to make money AND they are USELESS. Some of them charge up to 4000$ per month for simply NOTHING at all. They only connect people to charitiy organisations or NGOs. That`s it. Sometimes they pay small amounts to these organisations. Usually they do not care how these organisations work at all. They have no control and they do not care.
NOBODY NEEDS THEM IN TIMES OF INTERNET!
Again: They are TOTALLY USELESS!
Imagine these funds are used on-site. That IS a lot of money that can be used better!
