Be a voluntourist with the International Humanity Foundation

Be a voluntourist with the International Humanity Foundation!

The International Humanity Foundation is looking for volunteers to volunteer from their own homes or at our IHF childrens homes and educational centers in Kenya, Thailand, and Indonesia and to be friends and teachers to our children. By bringing together the disadvantaged children of these countries and volunteers from across the world, there is a learning opportunity for both. As both sides discover more about each other, their lives and their cultures and teach their others what they learned in this exchange, we hope to create a world of greater understanding and compassion.

Work

Being a volunteer is an amazing learning opportunity, both about the challenges of poverty and the workings of an international non-profit organization. Through one-on-one time with the children, you will learn intimately about the international issues of education, human rights, abuse and poverty. Depending on the center you serve at, you will also learn about local issues such as tribal rights, land ownership, citizen status and tribal conflicts. Work is tailored to the age of the volunteer.

IHF needs people with all skills. No matter your experience, IHF needs youAt the centre, volunteers divide their time between playing with and teaching the children and working on international projects. The centre host English, computer and math classes, and the children often seek tutoring for their homework, all tasks which volunteers take part in. You may also choose to participate in international work in the administration of IHF which will teach you how an international non-profit operates on a day-to-day basis.

It is important to note that these are intensive experiences. Once at the center, IHF requires its voluntourists to work four hours a day at the center, six day a week. There is time to sightsee and tour the nation, but work is always the first priority. IHF depends on its volunteers to function and to love the children. If you are not prepared to devote this time to work, you should look elsewhere for your service experience.

Typical Volunteer: Our volunteers have a passion for immersion in foreign cultures, an openness to new experiences and flexible approach to work. At our centres they will work with local staff and directly with the local population in conditions very different from the Western world. Special projects constantly arise, from moving food during famine feeds to monitoring children during breaks. Our volunteers have a lot of say in what they do and designing projects as long as it is approved by the director and promotes the mission of IHF.

Available To Participants: World wide
Participants Travel: Independently
Application Requires: Resume, online application

Qualifications:

Volunteers with IHF must speak English fluently and have a great attitude. They must also be mature, responsible, team players, fast learners, flexible and interested in global change through education and service.

Most importantly, our volunteers must have an open heart and a willingness to help others and a passion to make a difference!

Mission Statement:

IHF focuses on educating and feeding children who come from the most marginalized and disadvantaged backgrounds. IHF has set up orphanages in Kenya, Indonesia and Thailand. We seek to provide a way for children to get an education that they desperately desire and are not able to receive. By educating and teaching these children that they are significant and competent, we also teach them that everyone has a voice that matters. IHF promotes self-sufficiency in the communities we work in, primarily focusing on the education, nutrition, and care of children. IHF encourages understanding and caring between people of all nations and religions in order to better prepare the leaders of future generations. We believe that by promoting communication and understanding between students from the poorest of the poor and students in America, we will all be better educated by this exchange. We desire for every student in the United States to have communication with students abroad who are different both culturally and socioeconomically, in order for all students to be educated about the world they live in.

Please send us an email at volunteering at ihfonline.org if you want to learn more or have questions about volunteering with IHF.

Volunteer at an orphanage in Kenya

Volunteer at an orphanage in Kenya!

Volunteer to help children in Kenya!

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.

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 on our website. If you have any questions at this time, feel free to e-mail one of our helpful volunteers - volunteering at ihfonline dot org

Direct an orphanage in Kenya

Direct an orphanage in Kenya!

Looking for a volunteer management opportunity? The International Humanity Foundation needs your expertise and vigour to direct our orphanage!

The International Humanity Foundation (IHF) is seeking forward-thinking, dynamic graduates to contribute to our orphanage and education center in Kenya. 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 also has centers in Thailand and Indonesia and 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

At the centers, directors divide their time between teaching and nurturing the children and working on international tasks. All directors manage one or more of our international task teams such as university relations, photography, fundraising and media. Special projects constantly arise and include moving food during famine feeds to monitoring children during breaks. Our center directors have a lot of say in what they do and must possess excellent time management skills.

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.

Salary / Pay: IHF is a voluntary organization in the greatest sense of the term. Nobody is paid a wage from top to bottom. Directors must commit to serve at least a year at the center. Accommodation and food is provided.

Please take the time to familiarize yourself further with our organization on our website.

If you’re ready to apply please send a copy of your resume to hiring4 at ihfonline dot org

PLEASE NOTE: Currently we are only accepting applicants from East Africa for this position due to current work permit regulations. If you are not from this region and would like more information about volunteering with IHF Kenya please don’t hesitate to contact us at the email address above.
