The number of universities that are dispatching students oversea as a part of educational programs such as service learning and field work is increasing with the aim of nurturing global citizenships. These field sites are not only in advanced countries but also in developing countries. Students, as well as staff of local NGO/NPOs, have opportunities of interacting with intercultural contacts that can further in learning. The outcomes, of such programs, have been researched and reported focusing on local students who visit as volunteers. On the other hand, researches on local NGO/NPOs that receive foreign volunteers have not been examined. To develop a reciprocal relationship for both, it is important to understand the motive and structure of accepting foreign volunteers. Therefore, this research clarifies why and how local NGO/NPOs have been receiving foreign volunteers through interviews of NGO/NPOs in Cambodia, Bangladesh, India and Philippines.
