Having worked with various social projects / NGOs for many years, volunteers are actually not very helpful and generally create more work for the organisation than what they contribute, unless the volunteer has a specific skill offer and can stay for a few months at least.
Many organisations do it as a way of generating income (volunteers pay), but it's not like the volunteer is actually helping much.
Like suggesting that a volunteer can paint a wall at a school, better to actually employ a local to paint the wall, it will likely be done better, will probably be cheaper than the managing and coordinating the unskilled volunteer, and results in a local being paid to do the work.
