How was the local ABV Director and the support provided in-country? Excellent.

Personal Paragraph (ABV Program Testimonial):
Working in Belize was one of the best experiences in my life. The children, the managers and the caregivers were come of the most personable and amazing people who do so much with limited resources. The kids are great to be around and I fell in love with them and their great personalities. I would like to go and spend more time with them.

Are you willing to speak to other potential ABV volunteers? Yes.
