Volunteer Mission Belize Orphanage Childcare program

Our programs in Belize offer an unparalleled opportunity to discover one of the most fascinating lands of Central America. Belize is a stable, democratic country that lies on the eastern Central American coast; nestled between Mexico, Guatemala and the Caribbean Sea. Belize is culturally unique among Central American nations. It is the only nation in Central America with a British colonial heritage. The country is a sovereign, democratic state, and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is the constitutional Head of State In Belize over half of the tiny country is covered by tropical rainforest whilst offshore the second largest barrier reef in the world can be found as well as over 200 cayes (islands). The official language of this multi ethnic, multi lingual country is English although the Creole dialect and Spanish are widely spoken. Belize has a population of just 266,440 with nearly 50% of this population under 18 years of age. Volunteering in Belize will provide you the chance of a lifetime to explore this mysterious country while giving back to the community. Our volunteer projects allow you to support local children, at the orphanages and the onsite nursery school. Volunteering with us and Gain a Broader View of the World. https://www.abroaderview.org/volunteers/belize

Where

The programs are located outside of Belize City. This makes for an any easy arrival and departure days. The village is a close knit community where the locals are generous and easy going. Within close proximity are small shops and eateries and local transport (bus or taxi) to downtown Belize City (gateways to many tours). The wonderful climate and the hospitable people make Belize a wonderful place to live and volunteer. Our programs provide you the chance to discover the wonders of the Caribbean and Central America, while doing meaningful and rewarding community service work. This is a great opportunity to explore life in a coastal Caribbean town, live and work amongst the locals and realize one person can make a difference.
