I really got to know the girls at the orphanage
Submitted by k.p.cu - other | July 16, 2018
This has been one of my favorite travels of my whole life. I have done a lot of traveling and have had mostly good experiences but my time with A Broader View has been one of my favorites of all of my travels. The host family experience was incredible. My host Mom welcomed me with open arms from day one and was always checking in on me to be sure that I had everything I needed to be comfortable and feel supported.
I really enjoyed my volunteer site- a girls orphanage. I was able to really build relationships with the girls in the orphanage over my month long time with them. The girls were so welcoming and inclusive of me, I really was part of the family. Felt very safe the whole time, a safe neighborhood and a safe city (Cusco and Machu Picchu). I didn’t feel like such a tourist and like I stood out even though I am very fair skinned. I felt comfortable and at peace walking around. The locals are very friendly and many lookouts for tourists. My going away party at the orphanage was so lovely. The girls prepared a big poster with me and some made small gifts for me. I brought a cake, cookies, chips and sodas. The leader of the program did a little speech and then some of the girls talked. I then received the card and through a few tears shared with the girls how thankful I was for each one of them. I really got to know the girls and build relationships with them. It was so hard to say goodbye—which really indicates a lot of love and relationships built.

Volunteering in Belize with A Broader View was probably one of the best experiences of my life. Just like everyone would be if they came to a foreign country alone, I was nervous that something would go wrong or I would find the experience too difficult. With the support of the local coordinator, her staff, ABV in the USA, my volunteer location and the people of Belize, I was the happiest person ever. I got to volunteer as well as learn the unique history of Belize, and the indigenous people. The USA and Belize have so many differences, but by coming to Belize I have a new appreciation for happiness. Seeing the kids of the orphanage go to school with big smiles on their faces reminded me that happiness isn’t based on the things that you have, but rather what you make of it!
Maternity Projects Mongolia
Submitted by Melissa - UCLA | July 12, 2018
The maternity project in Mongolia was a wonderful experience. I enjoyed working in several different settings and exploring the city of Ulaanbaatar and the beautiful sites surrounding it. The Mongolian culture is open and friendly and I never felt unsafe or uncomfortable. The other volunteers were great too, and it was fun to meet new people from all over the world. I recommend this project to all volunteers that have the qualifications.
Lovely Orphanage in Costa Rica
Submitted by Madeline - USA | July 11, 2018
My experience volunteering was extremely positive and I had a wonderful time at the children’s orphanage. The staff I met were friendly and willing to help. My language immersion was a great experience and I learned a lot very quickly which was a huge help in navigating Costa Rica. My host family went above and beyond to assist me throughout my program and I am so grateful for all they did. Overall I was extremely pleased with my program and felt very supported throughout.
The most positive experience during my program was the rewards of volunteering and the feeling of being able to give back whilst simultaneously becoming immersed in a foreign country and experiencing all that Costa Rica has to offer.
Be to be prepared to be out of your comfort zone. The best experiences I had in my program were the ones that I had never experienced anything like before and was not afraid to get involved in. Definitely take initiative throughout your program, although you are in a foreign environment be proactive in making your program the best it can be so you don’t have any regrets.

I am 18 years old and choose to volunteer in Nepal to experience a new culture and country and impact the lives of people from underprivileged country. I did the pre-nursing program to gain a greater experience in the dental field. I did not spend much time here, but the longer you stay the more they will teach you. I did enjoy experiencing a healthcare setting much different than one and the US. The country itself was amazing and very different than the one I am from. I loved getting to explore and learning about the country. Everyone here was very welcoming. I even got the inviting to have lunch at a dental student’s home. The host family was also very welcoming and did a good job of making us feel safe and at home.
If you have time I would take a weekend to go near Pokhara, I personally did not have time to leave the Kathmandu area because I came for a short amount of time. There are also several great areas to visit around the Kathmandu area that I got to experience.
