Review Volunteer Art Gunther Belize orphanage care Program

Going over the Christmas/new year’s holidays was a little difficult because we couldn’t take small trips with the kids, but the kids are delightful and so much fun to be with. We will miss all of them and the wonderful staff at the orphanage.

Review Volunteer Gabe Elmore in Belize at the Orphanage program - 5.0 out of 5 based on 148 reviews

I am 17 years old and I live in Smithers, British Columba Canada. In school I am currently working on grade 11. I work at motorcycle/chainsaw shop do wild land firefighting and race motocross during the summer. I herd about ABV through my sister who also talk me into going. We chose Belize location because of feedback from friends who had previously been to Belize orphanage has been a great experience getting to know all of the kids as well as all the other volunteers. My work consisted mostly of cleaning, organizing, painting and fixing stuff. It’s great because whatever skills you already have, they will be able to use in some way. I will definitely consider coming again, only next time I hope to bring a few friends along. The accommodations have been good, the staff is fun and never boring to work with, and most of the kids seem to be well behaved.

Review Volunteer Ardyn Elmore in Belize at the Orphanage program

I really enjoyed my time in the program. Being able to spend time with the children, other ABV volunteers and staff was a life changing experience. I made many new friends and incredible memories here. I will be taking home priceless memories and a greater appreciation for the culture of Belize. I will miss the kids and I feel I am leaving a piece of my heart here in Belize. I look forward to coming back if I can to visit again.

Review Volunteer Amanda Wong in Costa Rica Sea Turtle Conservation program

I really enjoyed my time at the sea turtle program. It was rewarding, educational and inspiring to see both mother turtles laying eggs and baby turtles hatching out of their nests. The local area is a small community and you get to know a lot of people in the area in a short amount of time. I really enjoyed the days when we did a day-time nest digging (exhumation), which is when everyone can come and see baby turtles run down the beach to the sea that the volunteers have rescued from their nests. I took this opportunity to talk to the crowds about the importance of the work we're doing for sea turtle conservation, solicit donations, educate them on the work ABV does for sea turtle survival and explain sea turtle life cycles and physiology to all who were there. I also answered a lot of questions about sea turtles which further enhanced their experiences as they could learn and see these amazing creatures start their lives.

Volunteer Anthony Nguyen Review Nepal Kathmandu Medical Program

Overall the hospital was a great volunteer program. I wished I could stay longer than 1 week but has to leave due to school. Try to do 1-3 weeks in future.

Review Volunteer James Hanson in Ecuador Quito at the Seniors Care Program

This is my 2nd volunteer experience through ABV. Both have been well organized and professional with exceptional on-site coordinators, host families, and professional language lessons. I think that you get much value for your money.

Review Volunteer Rebecca Phemister in Nepal Kathmandu Women Support Program

Make the most of your time and sudhir’s advice about places to visit and see. Be prepared for business of lots of people. Ensure you have some small Nepalese notes when you first arrive in case people ask for tips at the airport.
