Why A Broader View Volunteer

We are a registered Nonprofit organization with a 501 c(3) status in the USA.  Why this matters when looking to volunteer abroad:

  1. Accountability Greatnonprofits.org
  2. Oversight VolunteerMatch.org
  3. Transparency Guidestar.org
  4. Tax deductible program fees

PRE-TRIP SUPPORT – Going abroad can be daunting especially for someone who has never traveled before. ABV’s staff will help you prepare for your trip with sound advice and dedicated support getting a passport, booking flights, securing a visa and getting vaccinations. ABV staff provides guidelines for fundraising, including an online platform to raise donations as well as fundraising sample letters/media announcements.

AFFORDABLE -  As many of our volunteers are students, or recent retirees, affordability is a driving factor when choosing a project.  ABV program fees are tax deductible for US tax payers.  ABV allocates up to 65% of program fees as donations for the local partners and projects where volunteers are based.  You know when joining an ABV your program fees are used to support the programs we offer in 25 countries.

WORTHWHILE PROGRAM – Volunteer sites have been hand selected to ensure our programs are operating responsibility and have sustainable, positive impact on the local partner and community.  Volunteers work with thoroughly screened institutions, trustworthy organizations and handpicked families that have working with ABV for almost 10 years.

SAFETY/RESPONSIBILITY - Safety is our number one concern for our volunteers, especially those under 21 years old.  All of US and local staff and host families follow the same safety protocols, working together to ensure our volunteers can have a safe meaningful experience.  Evening curfews are enforced, as well as a no drug or drinking policy.  ABV maintains a 24/7 emergency telephone number for use before/during a program.

CULTURAL IMMERSION - We believe that the best way to learn about cultural differences is to experience it first-hand. Volunteering to do meaningful work is not only beneficial to the community, it is self-rewarding.  In an ABV program you will connect with the local community, working side by side them each day, taking language lessons, having local meals and living with local host.  Most ABV volunteers return from their program stating their lives have been changed forever.

POST-TRIP SUPPORT – At the completion of an ABV program volunteers are presented with the Presidential Service Award and an ABV Volunteer Diploma.  Upon request: letter of completion, university credit and community hours verification.

HIV Orphanage Assistance

Volunteer in Peru Lima – Volunteers in this orphanage program help with the daily care of children living with HIV/Aids. The children’s home supports 40 children, about half of whom live at the center full time.  Most of the children are orphans, while others have been abandoned by their families because they could not afford care and treatment.  The home provides care for children aged 3 -13 years old. 

In addition to supporting the daily running of the home, volunteer are needed at the on-campus pre-school focused on developing the children’s life skills, confidence and independence.

There is always a lot going on at this home!  Volunteers do not have a single role in this program, rather they help where the need is most.  Some of the daily activities volunteers get involved in: 

  • Caring for the youngest children -  Helping with morning breakfast routines. 
  • Assisting in the pre-school lessons (children ages 3-5 years old) 
  • Cooking and meal prep.  Helping with breakfast and lunch. 
  • Organizing games and afterschool activities  
  • Accompanying the children for health checkup and vaccinations.  
  • Helping the older children with their homework
