For many Vietnam will forever be associated with the horrors of war and economic  repression. But there are other scenes to be found. The green lush scenery and colorful hill tribes, floating markets of the Mekong Delta, and miles of white sandy beaches, draw thousands of visitors to Vietnam each year. Vietnam has become a favorite destination of more and more tourists to Asia.

The country has a vibrant legacy from different cultures evident in the character of its towns, as well as in the architecture and food. Despite recent economic gains, Vietnam remains a low-income country. A significant proportion of Vietnamese people live just above the poverty line. More than three quarters of the population, and 90 per cent of poor people overall, live in rural areas, mainly near river deltas. Almost 80 per cent of the country's poor people depend on agriculture for their livelihood.

Our programs allow you to take part in meaningful community service work, while discovering the wonders of this fascinating country.

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.
