Volunteer Ghana: Overall my experience in Ghana was one that I enjoyed. My host family was wonderful; the locals are friendly and the landscapes are breathtaking. I cannot wait to come back to Ghana as a traveler to see more of the country.
Volunteer Chile: I absolutely loved my experience in La Serena as a whole and working at the Colegio (school). I experienced many different areas of the culture traveling all over the area with other ABV volunteers and friends that I made at the school. It was an incredible opportunity, I learned so much from. A Broader View was great, I will defiantly use them for any future trips.
Volunteer Belize. I loved making a connection with these kids. It is going to be hard to leave them, and a piece of my heart will always be here. I have enjoyed being able to take weekend trips to explore more of the country.
My life has forever changed because of the children of the orphanage and my experiences in Belize. I have not loved every second of it if I am being honest. The heat and the bugs are difficult to accommodate. I really love the friends I have made in Belize. I plan on returning someday.
Volunteer Costa Rica My favorite memory at the orphanage was when it was a child three year old birthday. When we sang for him and brought out the cake his face lit up. Once he received his present, a monster truck that could lift its front wheels in the air, I have never seen him so happy.
Volunteer Uganda: I enjoyed my time in Uganda. The people made this experience a good one. The school system were very good to us, and the solar light distribution program was very positive and eye opening to see so many struggling.
Our experience was incredible. The people and culture of Uganda are beautiful. The A Broader View program coordinators in Bulenga were amazing. Our experience would not have been nearly as comfortable without them. Thank you!
I came to Ecuador with 3 goals: improve my Spanish, work in a hospital & get to know Quito. I was able to accomplish all 3 goals. My entire experience in Quito Ecuador has been excellent & that is thanks to the Spanish professors, the hospital staff & my host family.
I enjoyed every minute of my time in Cusco and have learned so much. Not only things related to my volunteering, but also about myself and the culture of Peru.
ABV is a great opportunity to explore a new country and work in a place to learn more about the healthcare system if working in the clinic.
I almost cried on my last day volunteering, as my teacher Carolina and all the ninos/ninas gave me a big hug. All the teachers at the day care and the director really appreciated my efforts and hard work during the month despite my poor Spanish! The kids wore me out every day but it was very rewarding and I will long remember the experience!
I am a high school student that volunteers often but on a small scale with the Red Cross. I was able to come here from Germany to help with the construction project at an orphanage. The staff were very nice and welcoming. I helped the orphanage level their front yard. We build a wall to help stop flooding and I painted the entrance room and some of the stairwell.
