The Kindergarten  mission is to prioritize the strengthening of the capabilities of the families and the children themselves in order to achieve the formation of better generations within a framework of sound principles and values by developing actions aimed at the fulfilment of their rights in order to achieve a more just and human society.

The kindergarten has an average of 140 to 160 children that are from single parent households or from families of extreme poverty. The Kindergarten runs well because of the continuous effort and time given by all the teachers and the volunteers.

As a volunteer you will have the unique experience of working intimately with a new culture, and will surely develop close relationships with the children and the teachers. The work in the Kindergarten is enjoyable, though also a bit tiring at times. Some daily talks include making sure the children wash their hands, keeping an eye that they don’t start fighting, entertaining them with any special skills you have, and playing with them at break time.

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.
