Volunteer Guatemala: I didn´t really know what to expect when I arrived, but I kept an open mind and had an amazing time. I learned so much Spanish, ate amazing food, and met some great people.

Volunteer in Peru, This volunteer position opened my eyes and gave me a greater perspective on the world and dentistry.  I had the opportunity to experience different standards, cultures, and places.  I would definitely recommend this program for anyone who wants to help people, gain experience or even travel.

Volunteering to provide medical and dental care here in La Ceiba Honduras was one of the most memorable and rewarding experiences of my life. The people here really need the care and the equipment that we donated. It was also rewarding being able to perform and teach some extremely useful Oral & Maxillofacial surgical procedures on the patients and doctors working here  (respectively). Other than the initial snag upon our arrival here in La Ceiba everything else was fantastic. I would highly recommend doing this program here in La Ceiba Honduras to anyone.

Volunteer Ecuador The trip was amazing! The volunteer experience was unlike anything I have ever experienced before. I am happy with the opportunity I was given to help the clinic. I would do it again in a heartbeat. Also, tourism in Quito and surrounding areas is great! Cotopaxi was amazing and I hope to return to Quito again one day.

1- How was the local ABV Coordinator/staff and the support provided in-country? Overall the support I received from Maria Elena, the local ABV Coordinator, was great! From the moment I arrived at the airport, she was very helpful at showing me around Cusco and teaching me how to get to all the places I needed to go. While almost everything was amazing, the only thing that needs to be improved is making sure that volunteers are placed in the volunteer work they signed up to do. I signed up to work with kids from the ages of 0 to 5 and unfortunately, because of teacher strikes I was only able to

1) How were the local ABV coordinator and the support provided in-county? She was perfect, she was the epitome of calm and support.  She completely stopped what she was doing to answer questions or give us direction.  Irma and Alan of the after-school program were also especially accommodating.  Everyone of them was also fun to be with. Shelter program 2) What was the most surprising thing you experienced? I was surprised by how much I wanted to completely uproot my life and move it to Xela.  I loved the people, the food and the language. 3) What was the most difficult to experience? Leaving the children was definitely the most difficult

Selon moi, la chose la plus surprenante de ma famille d’acceuil était qu’il y avait emplement de place pour mes amies et moi (nous étions 5 en tout). Nous pouvions dormir et se préparer confortablement sans être dans nos propres jambes.
