Volunteer Peru: I did not expect to form part of the family. We had a great time altogether. I came to know their good friends and close relatives. We had a lot of fun listening to music. They made me discovered Peruvian culture, dance, gastronomy and ritual.

Volunteer Ecuador: I stayed with a host family and the extended family visited often. I felt like I had plenty of space. The meals were very delicious. However, I eat plenty of meat and vegetables. I left my computer and phone out plenty of times so I feel safe. People are friendly when you ask them for directions.

1.-How was the local ABV Coordinator and the support provided in-country, give details? Always available! Great! 2- What was the most positive surprise you experienced? Overall I was surprised by the friendliness of everyone. The program, the kids and the locals are so friendly and made me feel incredibly welcome! 3- What was most difficult/cultural shock to experience? At the program: Food – different than my everyday eating. The country: How slow and laid back things are everywhere. 4- Any tips for future volunteers, give as many details as possible… Clothing: Whatever you are most comfortable in, will be very hot, pants for night time because of bugs. Donations: Girly things

Volunteer Honduras: I really really enjoyed my ABV experience in La Ceiba. The clinics were well run and busy, the people were beyond helpful and friendly and the host family was perfect. We were always made to feel very welcome and safe and always made to feel as if we were helping while learning.  I would recommend La Ceiba to everyone.

Volunteer Nepal: Overall I loved my experience here and time spent at the hospital. It was different than what I was expecting but it definitely expected my expectations. I did language immersion classes which were very helpful.

Volunteer Honduras: The program was truly amazing and much better than I expected. Every aspect of it from the accommodation, food, country, and the project itself were excellent. I leaned a lot about dentistry especially tooth extractions during the project. I even got to have first person experiences assisting the doctors.

Volunteer Chile: J’ai aimé mon expérience de bénévolat au Colegio et à Hogar. Les élèves et les enseignants étaient tous extrêmement gentils.  Les journées ont passé tellement vite quand j’étais au Collegio.  Chaques soirs, j’avais hâte au lendemain matin pour aller retrouver les élèves et la Profesora Fabiola.

Volunteer Costa Rica: I was lucky enough to volunteer at a hospital where I would help care for the babies or kids whose parents could not always be with them. There are not enough nurses to care for all of the kids and the parents need to eat or sleep at some point and that is where the rest of the volunteers and I come in. We would help take care of the children.

Volunteer Nepal: My favorite part of this trip was getting to know the workers in the hospital as well as others in the community. Every person we met added something more to our trip. For example we had a very helpful language immersion class and our teacher brought us to her aunt’s house who had three cows all of which they let us name which I thoughts was pretty cool
