Social welfare in Chile is a major contribution any volunteer can offer to this country. Some of the social services in previous times, which were most important in government planning, were support in improving healthcare and upgrading the living standards. Do you care about the welfare of other people? Then, if the answer is yes, it is recommended to support Chile with an open heart, which you will enjoy since it is an enriching experience.
The non-profit voluntary program, A Broader View is highly recommended to join and volunteer. The organization is solely focused on charity and enables their volunteers to partake at any time of the year. Furthermore, A Broader View provides voluntary services to 19 other countries and hopes to expand their service to several more regions.
Separate from the housing aspect, A Broader View facilitates the locals by helping underprivileged children and families. The volunteers can also assist by providing after school programs; such as, homework assistance, training in computing and technology. For the more mature persons, current awareness matters and sessions for battered and abused women.
It is an enrichment to do this type of voluntary work because you have the chance to contribute your unique skills, for the betterment of another. Understanding the Spanish language of the Chile locals is also a bonus, although while volunteering locals will be glad to assist.
Volunteers must have a sociable personality and be willing to blend with the locals. A Broader View offers this program throughout the entire year and makes accommodation for their volunteers. This includes three meals per day and volunteers normally reside with a family. Feel free to work extensive hours and plan your daily activities.
