In particular Nepal, volunteer tourism is said to have negative impact on the local community and I am wondering how one determines such initiatives (with good intentions). Thank you!
Lots of different views to this topic, which can get quite heated! One possible good source for you is http://voluntourismgal.wordpress.com/ where she posts perspectives, trip ideas and operators. She was in Nepal this last year too, so she may have posted details of that trip too. Have a look and do a search around for Nepal information. There is also a list of other sustainable and voluntourism bloggers/websites there. over 7 years ago
