4- Any tips for future volunteers… (clothing, travel, personal items, donations)

Don´t sweat too much what you bring. You can always buy things here pretty cheap. Leave room in your suitcase for souvenirs. They have a Walmart.

a. Make friends with locals

b. If you have opportunities, take them.

6- Personal Paragraph (ABV Program Testimonial):
ABV was an amazing help both in the US and in-country. They even helped us sight-see. I 100% recommend ABV and I will use them again if I do abroad volunteer work.
