International Humanity Foundation – 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 education centers in Indonesia, and

our children’s homes Kenya and Thailand, as part of our Work-Study Volunteer Program.

● Teaching, organising workshops/activities, caring for kids

● Work with our Media, Fundraising and Online Outreach teams

● Learn about poverty and development

Each IHF center is a product of its environment and follows the cultural code and norms of

its host country, so there are different programs in each center. Your work as a volunteer

with IHF will be divided between local and international tasks. Locals tasks are teaching

English, computer and math classes in our education centers, or assisting with the care

of our children and organising activities in our children’s homes. There are also additional

projects to help with in all centers.

For your international tasks you will be assigned teams, made up of volunteers in all centers,

and work on administrative tasks for not just the center you are staying in, but the whole

organisation. Areas assigned include Online Outreach, Media and Fundraising. This is a

great opportunity to experience not only the hands on, in-field side of development, but also

the overall management and running of an international organisation. Some pre-trip tasks

must be completed in order to gain an understanding of the kind of work you will be doing.

● Fluent written and spoken English is required

● Minimum stay is 4 weeks

● Cost: $55 – $75 per week

● Basic food and accommodation included

● Cost decreases for longer stays

Jobs – IHF – Co-Director


If you’re looking for a long-term volunteering opportunity, the International Humanity Foundation is offering you the chance to help in our children’s home.

IHF is looking for hard-working, committed volunteers to help in our six centres in Thailand, Kenya and Indonesia. IHF provides education, and in some cases, homes, to children. IHF has no central headquarters; each centre is a product of its environment and follows the cultural code and norms of its host country.

We have four centres in Indonesia, in Bali, Jakarta, Medan and Banda Aceh. Our Indonesian centres offer English, maths and computer classes to disadvantaged children. With a population of over 240 million, Indonesia’s public education system often fails to give children a chance to escape the poverty they were born into. We fill that gap and give kids a chance to aim higher.

Our Thailand centre is a home for seven hill-tribe children, most of whom are now teenagers. Children from this marginalised community come to our centre for a stable home and a chance for an education.

Our Kenya centre is a children’s home and also provides emergency relief to the surrounding community. This is the biggest IHF centre, with approximately 70 kids. The kids are from the marginalised Pokot tribe, whose conditions are amongst the worse in Kenya. Living conditions in this region are harsh, and we provide basic needs such as a home, food, and access to education to children who would otherwise go without. We also run livestock donation projects and other initiatives to relieve the extreme poverty where we can.

Depending on the centre of your choice, your tasks can involve caring for the children, teaching, managing volunteers and local staff as well as working on international tasks. IHF is a grassroots, all-volunteer organisation with no central office, so all administration work is done in centre. All Co-Directors manage one or more of our international task teams such as university relations, fundraising and media; working together online with volunteers in other centres. You will be assigned according to your experience. You must possess excellent time management skills.

Those who are secure without the comforts of home gain the most from this valuable opportunity. We are looking for applicants preferably with:
– A related university degree; eg. in social studies, language, teaching, medicine, law, social work
– Experience abroad; travel, working or volunteering
– 1-2 years working experience in any field
– Experience with teaching and/or children
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 our organization functions.

Stipend: Co-Directors must commit to serve at least a year at the centre. Basic accommodation and food is provided by IHF. You are a volunteer at the centre, and all local tasks completed are done so without pay. Volunteers who commit to serving one year or more will receive a small monthly stipend. It is broken down as follow:-

First 3 months: Training period – $20 per month

3-6 months: Assistant co-Director – $50 per month

6-9 months: Co-Director – $80 per month

9-12 months: Co-Director – $100 per month

This stipend results only from the international online work; not from any local tasks.

After one year there is the opportunity to become a full Director.

Strict IHF Policy: These stipends are fixed. They will not be raised for more experienced applicants, and everyone will be upgraded according to the timeframes outlined above, and no sooner. There are no exceptions to this, regardless of what may be the situation in the centre. We are an all-volunteer organization and training and hands-on experience is paramount.
