A Broader View Volunteers Corp's picture

A Broader View Volunteer's mission is to provide developing countries around the world with significant volunteer programs that both aid the neediest communities and forge a lasting bond between those volunteering and those they have helped.  A Broader View is a nonprofit organization with no religious affiliations.

Why? 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.   Returnees usually state that their lives have been changed forever.

Our Goals: We hope to enlighten and educate the minds of those who choose to make that journey of caring to a different culture so unlike their own.   Volunteering in foreign countries helps promote communication and trust between nations, and provides everyone involved an opportunity to expand their global horizons.

ABV Impact: ABV has been sending volunteers abroad since 2007.  In that time, we have sent over 12,000 volunteers to 245 programs in 25 countries.  Many of these volunteers have assisted in the care and education of over 24,000 orphans.  Some have served in the medical and dental arena.  Numerous children  and students have been instructed by ABV teaching volunteers.  Many others have aided in the rescue of sea turtle and the conservation efforts in the Amazon.   And others have built schools, dorms, play grounds and fresh water wells. A Broader View raised and distributed over US$3 million in donations We continue to be a part of the positive change within many communities around the world.

We have seen firsthand the impact A Broader View volunteers make in the communities where they are serving. Volunteers have contributed their time and skills to fix classroom desks, paint walls which would have remained bleak and gray, cleared fields for harvesting and cook meals for hungry children, and read stories to kindergartners. Some ABV volunteers have decided to sponsor a child they bonded with in a program, and other volunteers have come home and championed their project to raise money and awareness to the plights of the children they worked with. ABV volunteers have delivered babies and treated patients in their own homes who would never have had medical attention otherwise. Many volunteers come home completely inspired by the work they did with ABV. In fact, we've had volunteers join the Peace Corps, enroll in medical school, and many who have changed school majors or careers, all as a result of the life changing experiences they had with the ABV program. Join us today and gain A Broader View of the World!
