This is a senior living home, with professional staff and and volunteers dedicated to provide care, companionship and permanent attention to elderly women. Currently, there are 45 female residents, whom have been abandoned in the streets or have been abused or neglected by their family.  Although the local staff do all they can to care, provide food and love, there is such a need for more help!

Volunteers help to clean the bedrooms and the house, washing clothes, help in the kitchen, feed the elderly women, spend time and play games with them.  Also, give them the medicines, heal their lesions, cut their hair (if you can do it) and accompany them to the hospital.  Basic Spanish speaking volunteers are preferred. 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.
