Why did you choose Honduras –La Ceiba and what program are you doing and for how long?
We chose Honduras because it was best for our family. I am volunteering at the day care for 1 week.

How was your Spanish Immersion program?
Very fun and good.

Why did you choose A Broader View and how did you find them?
My mom found it while looking for a volunteering program. It was the best for us.

How was your experience at the (orphanage..etc) program?
It was very fun but also tiring, I really liked it.

How were your accommodation, host family and meals?

How was the service of the local Abroaderview Coordinator and staff?
We never used the local coordinator/staff.

Can you give tips for future volunteers on what to bring as donations for the program?
-Books, Pencils, Crayons, Toys, Batteries, Bed sheets, Composition, Markers, Learning materials, Notebooks, Pots, Swings or even a swing set

Any tips on what tours to do on the weekends for the new volunteers?
The only tours we did were Sambo Creek and the river Cangrejal which was excellent! Definitely worth going to.

What did surprise you must about the program, city, the experience in general?
I loved the fruit. A lot less developed then like what I’m used to. Not much more because my mom told me what to expect.

How was the service of A Broader View US office before traveling to Honduras?
My mom used it not me.

Would you recommend Abroaderview to other volunteers?
Yes, definitely.
