  • Peru - Ayacucho: Elderly Care Home

    As in many communities, the elderly are among the most vulnerable population, many abused or neglected by their family.  Volunteering helps to improve the health and sense of dignity among the residents.  You will provided welcome companionship, support and love. 

    This Home, run by a religious organization,  accommodates 120 full time residents.  Although the local staff do all they can to care, provide food and love, there is such a need for more help! 

  • Peru Ayacucho: Language Immersion

    It is never too late to learn a language.   What better way than to be 100% immerse?  You're forced to think in another language, think as the locals do, and truly grasp what it means to be someone that lives in that particular area!

    Delve into a new language. This is a great opportunity to take Spanish lessons while being part of a community project in Ayacucho. Be fully immersed in Peruvian culture, learn Spanish, live with a local host family, all the while contributing to a community led program. Spanish lessons are generally 20 hours per week.  The rest of your time will be dedicated to your volunteer project.

    Review Volunteer Jasmine Carino Honduras La Ceiba PreMedical Program

    My experience with A Broader View was great. It is so well organized and very affordable. You can find cheaper alternatives but you will be sacrificing this level of organization and the chance to do so much in the actual program. Not only did I gain a ridiculous amount of medical experience in just 2 weeks, I learned so much about Honduran culture and the way of life.

    Spending two weeks in Honduras was a fun and exciting experience where I learned to appreciate all the resources we have available to us in the United States. The people were very friendly and the staff at the various locations we volunteered were thankful for the help that we provided. I am glad that I had the opportunity to experience Honduras culture, living and working conditions first hand.

    I first came with ABV to Xela in 2014 for two weeks to volunteer in the Centro de Salud and instantly fell in love. Two years later when I started PA school I came back with 10 of my classmates and faculty. This year we came back with 22 people! Everyone who comes to Xela wants to come back. I have so much love for this city and hope to come back again one day.

    Keep an open mind. Understand that everything you do means something. Never underestimate your ability to have an impact and to make a real difference in someones life. Even if you feel like you didn´t do anything, or that it just wasn´t enough – it was. It is appreciated, someone is grateful. That is what it is all about.

    Being an international volunteer, especially for a short period of time, can be challenging. But it is so worth it.
