Description: Volunteer to help children in Kenya, Thailand and Indonesia

The International Humanity Foundation (IHF) is seeking forward-thinking, dynamic individuals of all ages/backgrounds to contribute to our orphanage and education centers in Kenya, Thailand or Indonesia. IHF has grown over the past 25 years under the visionary leadership of Carol Sasaki, CEO and the dedication of thousands of volunteers from around the world.

IHF is distinct from other NGO’s in this field as we practice the ‘Pass it on’ ethos in marginalized regions. We offer the privilege of education to those who without our organization could not reach it. IHF has no central headquarters, as each center is a product of its environment and follows the cultural code and norms of its host country. IHF volunteers teach English, computer and math classes as well as maintaining relationships with local staff and the local population at every centre.

IHF has grown over the past 25 years under the visionary leadership of Carol Sasaki, CEO and the dedication of thousands of volunteers from around the world.

IHF is distinct from other NGO’s in this field as we practice the ‘Pass it on’ ethos in marginalized regions. We offer the privilege of education to those who without our organization could not reach it. IHF has no central headquarters, as each center is a product of its environment and follows the cultural code and norms of its host country. IHF volunteers teach English, computer and math classes as well as maintaining relationships with local staff and the local population at every centre.

In addition to teaching, our organization’s volunteers engage in:
●Public relations
●Fundraising
●Legal
●Finance
●Project experts (i.e., Peace farm and food relief initiatives)
●Media
IHF offers four unique roles for volunteers. We have opportunities for those who prefer online advocacy or those who would purely like to gain in-field experience and teach the children at one of the centers. IHF thrives because of its success in recruiting versatile volunteers. Those who are secure without the comforts of home gain the most from this valuable opportunity. Although we are mainly seeking those with the above expertise, IHF is willing to consider those with transferrable skills, if you can demonstrate them during our application process. Fluency in English, both written and spoken is essential. Those interested in volunteering at an IHF centre are required to complete a level of pre-trip duties in order to gain an understanding of how grassroots organizations function.

IHF is a voluntary organization in the greatest sense of the term. Nobody is paid a wage from top to bottom. Therefore, when volunteering with us, the volunteer will need to pay their own travel expenses. To stay at one of the centers, a $55 to $75 a week fee will cover the cost of accommodation and meals and decreases the longer you volunteer.

Please take the time to familiarize yourself further with our organization - www.ihfonline.org. If you have any questions at this time, feel free to e-mail one of our helpful volunteers - volunteering@ihfonline.org
