At A Broader View Volunteers, our mission is to provide developing countries around the world with significant volunteer programs that aid the neediest communities and forge lasting bonds between volunteers and those they have helped. We are a nonprofit organization with no religious affiliations, dedicated to promoting cultural understanding through first-hand experience.
We believe that volunteering to do meaningful work is not only beneficial to the community, but also self-rewarding. Many of our returnees report that their lives have been forever changed by the experience of volunteering abroad.
Our Goals: At A Broader View Volunteers, our goal is to enlighten and educate the minds of those who choose to volunteer abroad in different cultures. We believe that volunteering in foreign countries promotes communication and trust between nations, and provides everyone involved with an opportunity to expand their global horizons.
ABV Impact: A Broader View Volunteers has been organizing humanitarian programs since 2007, sending thousands of volunteers to over 345 project sites in 32 different countries. Our volunteers work with disadvantaged families and orphans, providing daily care, education, and health support. Many of our volunteers also serve in the medical and dental arenas, working in public clinics and community hospitals to provide outreach efforts. Additionally, our teaching volunteers have instructed numerous children and adults, and our conservation efforts have aided in the care and rescue of sea turtles throughout Latin America.
At A Broader View Volunteers, we believe in making a lasting difference in the places that need it most. That's why our volunteer programs are handpicked, so you can be sure you're making a real impact in a community that often struggles with poverty, disease, and a lack of skilled workers . Our volunteers have helped to build schools, playgrounds, and fresh water wells, while also participating in community outreach programs to educate about HIV/AIDS, provide oral vaccinations and distribute medicine and food, and solar lamps. In the past 17 years, A Broader View Volunteers has raised and distributed over $4.5 million in donations worldwide, continuing to be a part of the positive change within many communities around the world.
