Our volunteer projects are based within the Eastern Province, outside the city of Rwamagana. which is located about one hour from Kigali, the capital city.  Rwamagana is a typically city with large market set up, a bank, petrol station, bus stations, post office, church, and small hotel and restaurants. Our program is located about 3 miles outside of the city (but still close!)

Housing Options:

Local Host family. English/French speaking, located near the town of Rwamagana. Private bedroom, breakfast and dinner daily (Lunch at project). Expect basic village life, safe community, internet nearby and local shops, some homes do not have indoor plumbing. This option requires volunteer to commute by local minibus to the school each day. Cost is less than $1 per day, round trip, and journey is about 3 miles.

On-site at the school dormitory. Private bedroom, with a lock. 3 local meals provided daily at the school with the children. Expect basic village life - a safe community, no indoor plumbing. Some access to electricity is available at the school, but not at the accommodation. This option is a rural setting away from town without evening entertainment. Some staff stay overnight at school and you will also have the boarding students for company, although their level of English is not generally good enough to allow for conversation. The facility is secure with a night watch man, even though this is a remote location.

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.
