International Humanity Foundation

International Humanity Foundation's picture

The International Humanity Foundation (IHF) is seeking forward-thinking, dynamic individuals of all ages/backgrounds to contribute to our childrens' homes and education centers in Kenya, Thailand and 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.

Volunteers' roles varies greatly depending on what center they volunteer in, their preferences, skills and the current needs of the center and the children. IHF does to utilize each volunteers specific skills and interest as best as possible and there is room for flexibility and volunteers to conduct own projects when applicable.
