DENMARK / TUNISIA / CAMBODIA: ‘Fight the Power’

In September 2013, former MISSION NGO of the Week Turning Tables brought activist rappers and street artists from Cambodia, Egypt, Jordan, Libya and Tunisia to be a part of the IMAGES Festival in Denmark. The aim was to exhibit how youth in conflict prone countries around the world use music and art to push back oppression. This video was shot during 8 hectic days where the artists performed three massive concerts, painted 3 grand murals, participated in debates and artist talks in Copenhagen and Aarhus. The making of the video was a collaboration between young Danish and Tunisian filmmakers.

Studies show family-based care is a far better solution for these kids.

GLOBAL: What's Wrong with Volunteer Travel

 

Listen to Daniela Papi in her TEDx talk, she spent six years living in Cambodia and founded her own travel organization, PEPY TOURS, originally "voluntourism" and now shifted to learning travel. She brings to light the flaws in the efforts to do good on the international front, such as in Cambodia where the popularity of orphanage volunteering has led to the phenomenon that 3 out of 4 Cambodian "orphans" have 1 or more live parents. Here's her story.
