In this community most families rely on public day care facilities to watch their children. These essential services are provided in the fringe communities where children live in abject poverty.  The centers typically have about 30 children ages 8 months to 3 years old. Our volunteers work alongside a “Mom” and be an extra set of hands in the daily chores. The staff educate the kids, play with them and provide them nutritious food, all for free. Since most of the children come from poor families, the food they receive in the day care center is vital.

Volunteers will contribute to the education, child care, health and nutrition support provided by the centers. Tasks will focus on feeding, changing diapers, pre-school educational games and recreational learning support.

Volunteers with basic Spanish are welcome. Language Immersion lessons are available.

WHAT DO MY FEES PAY FOR?

When you join an A Broader View program your financial contribution supports the hundreds of needy communities where our volunteer programs are based.  Donations are helping to stimulate the local economies with coordinator and hosting jobs, with new constructions at local school and orphanage, with much needed medical supplies to under served hospitals and clinics. 

ABV works tirelessly year round to support our volunteers, and also to serve the local communities where we are based.  As a tax exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit charity organization we receive 100% of our funding from our volunteers' program fee donations. Your program fee is used for airport pick up & transfer, departure transfer, placement logistics, orientation, food & accommodations, in-country assistance as well as programmatic administrative support and continuity of our volunteer programs.   If you have questions about our program fees email to volunteers@abroaderview.org or call us toll free at 866-423-3258.
