I was nervous going in as I’m sure everyone is, but Maria Elena made me feel right at home. I worked at a kindergarten at first but the teachers went on strike so I have been working at the local Zoo which I am enjoying even more. If you are on the edge about signing up I have to say this was amazing and I think it is something everyone should try. Give it a shot you will nots regret it.
I think this was a great experience/opportunity for me. I worked at the dental hospital and it was great to see how different they treat their patients and the different accommodation they have to make. Living at Maria Elena´s was very nice, everything thing here was amazing. She had hot water, wifi and the meals were great! I think if you have the chance you should defiantly come abroad, it’s an experience you’ll never forget!
This trip to Nepal has been incredible! Every part of the program has far exceeded my expectations. Some of my favorite memories have been the trip I have taken each weekend to nearby cities and towns.
This has been a very eye opening experience for me. I have done so many things that some people could only dream of. I couldn’t have had a better experience traveling to a poverty stricken country.

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with ABV. Our coordinator Maria Elena, is absolutely wonderful, our host family, Maria del Carmen, kind and so welcoming and her young lady helper, Sheyla, so sweet and ready to help. All the other volunteers were friendly and motivated. Continue reading Volunteer Peru Cusco Review Isabelle Parker Child care program
I had a great time here in Cusco, seeing the sights, learning the history, meeting people and learning of their culture, and working with the excited children at the kindergarten. I was rather unlucky however, as I got stress sick and stayed sick for most of the time in country.
I am incredibly grateful for the experience that ABV gave me. The ABV program has opened my eyes to the value of experiencing another culture and learning another language.
Bring flashlights (torches) mosquito repellant. Protein bars. The local groceries are extremely limited. Do a safari if at all possible! They are fantastic! Plan on leaving your heart here.
Have fun and make your time last
Estoy más que complacido por todo lo que ABV me ha ayudado. Desde antes de venir a Costa Rica, ya el programa me estaba facilitando grandemente el proceso de solicitar y completar cada uno de los requisitos para participar en el programa. Es muy fácil de completar, si tienes una duda tienen un muy buen sistema de “online chat” el cual uno puede usar cada vez que tiene cualquier tipo de duda.
