India is an immense country.  It is the most populous democracy in the world and well known for its people, fairs and festivals, forts, palaces, architecture, temples, beaches, music, dances and arts. Indian culture is considered to be amongst the worlds oldest, richest and most diverse.

Hindi is the national language but English is commonly used. As within 2820 languages in the whole world, so many as 325 languages are spoken in India alone. It is said that dialect changes every 8-10 kilometer!

However, wide spread poverty remains a fact of life for around 40% of the population.  No other country on earth has more people living in slum settlements than India.  Our volunteer projects are focused on children support, education and community building.

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 [email protected] or call us toll free at 866-423-3258.
