The centre is located at around 80 km from Cordoba in the province of Cordoba. It is situated in Tiu Mayú (from the Quechua words "Tiu" - sand; "Mayú" - river).  It occupies 360 hectares in mountains, rivers, waterfalls and forests at 1,350 meters above sea level. The region is very remote – 11 km away from the closest village of La Cumbre.
The work of the centre takes place all year round, every day of the week.  Caring for primates is from 9am to 6-8pm, more or less.

Time off can be arranged depending on the number of volunteers with the volunteer coordinator in advance. Days off and half days off can be taken only one volunteer at the time (if it during working hours). After working hours you can go to town whenever you want to, alone or with other volunteers.

Some of the tasks that volunteer will do are: Feeding and care monkeys, construction and repair of refugees, assisting in the capture and handling of the monkeys, working in the tree plantation for the monkeys, washing monkey plates, and care of the other animals, such as, dogs, cats, geese, horses, llamas, donkeys, sheep, ducks and chickens.

It’s very important that the participant love animals and have no fear of them. Will be always a coordinator organizing the activities. (English speaker).

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.
