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 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.
My experience volunteering at the hospital has been wonderful. The nurses and doctors are some of the friendliest. Most helpful people I’ve met and I’ll be very sad to leave.
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 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.
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.
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.
