India: Teaching Program (Udaipur)

Your voluntary teaching work provides you with an opportunity to develop new skills in a very different environment. In addition, your work in the school adds to the educational experience of the children. It is a marvelous experience for them to interact with people from another culture who speak another language. They will learn the things more attentively and enthusiastically, and welcome you open-heartedly. When you leave school in the afternoon you will be content to see that your students have learnt the things taught by you and your efforts are bringing results. This, we are sure, will bring you great personal satisfaction in helping children who have not been so fortunate.

Make a lasting impact that changes lives and provides you one of the most rewarding experiences of your life: Volunteering Abroad.

Flexibility is the key to A Broader View volunteer abroad programs. Volunteers choose their own project location, program dates, length of stay and in some location: choose of accommodations. Volunteer abroad programs are offered year round, from one week to three months. Have long? Some projects have stays up to five and six months. Still want longer? Consider combining multiple countries for a long term mission trip.

Volunteering Abroad allows you to work side by side local people, learn a new language, immerse in a exotic culture, live with a local host family and participate in humanitarian mission work and make a meaningful contribution to your host community.

Volunteer abroad projects

A Broader View Volunteer year-round commitment our hosting communities provides both short term fixes with financial support and long term solutions with sustainable results. Our volunteer and organizational support advocate the importance of education,bolsters international culture awareness, contributes to health care access in poor communities and is a champion for bettering the quality of life in developing nations. A Volunteer Abroad program stimulates the local economy by providing host families with second incomes, provides financial donations and hands on support by the volunteers, as well as strengthens a volunteers resolve to continue helping the program once they return back to their own homes. ABV partners with local, grass-roots organizations which are solidly established within each community. Our volunteers work in conjunction with the locals as aides or assistants and not replacements. We perform regular assessments with our in-country coordinators, project leaders and host families. We determine what works best and what does not.We procure feedback from our volunteers when they return and utilized their suggestions.

Volunteer fees cover accommodations that are pre-approved and monitored by ABV. These locations are safe, secure, and supervised. Accommodations can include host families, hostels, shared guest houses, on-site dorm rooms (in orphanages), and local hotels. Fees also cover two or three local meals per day. In addition, fees cover airport arrival "meet and greet", transfer from airport to project location, orientation and support by an in-country ABV director, and departure transfer to the airport. Fees also cover the placement and supervision of the volunteer into the project.

In preparing for a volunteer abroad program

Our volunteers have direct telephone and email access to ABV, and we supply a detailed 25 page orientation guide. This covers information about visas, vaccinations, recommended packing lists, money exchange information, water and health safety issues, cultural differences, work expectations as well as fund-raising information. Our website is a plethora of information that includes detailed facts, resources for discounted air travel and travel insurance. We also have videos with clear explanations, as well as feedback from previous volunteers. When the volunteer arrives in-country, they receive a one-day overview orientation from the ABV coordinator.

One of the best things that ABV does is facilitate change for the good throughout the world. We know that our work directly connects our volunteers - sometimes for a lifetime - to people in need. Seeing the concrete results from a volunteers hard work, and knowing that we are a direct part of that is personally very satisfying.
