A Truly Rewarding Experience | Rating: 1
I am currently volunteering with the International Humanity Foundation in Bali, Indonesia. I can honestly say it has been the most eye-opening and rewarding experience of my life. Away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas, you see the true poverty in which many people of Bali live. For those children and their families living in remote areas where there is little or no infrastructure, IHF provides much needed support. By providing free lessons in English, maths and computer skills IHF makes a real difference to the lives of these children. The centre is a safe and caring environment where the children are happy to come, and they light up our day! It is a joy to see them so eager to learn and it is a pleasure to see them interact with their friends in such a friendly environment. If you are undecided about volunteering, let me assure you that it is the best thing I have ever done! There are certainly challenges involved, but if you are not adverse to hard work and you truly want to open your eyes to how most of the world lives, please consider dedicating your time and effort to IHF.

Commentary on the International Humanity Foundation (IHF) | Rating: 0.1
We strongly believe in transparency and that everyone involved with IHF has the right to know what exactly is happening at their centers. In summary, the IHF Center in Nakuru, Kenya is not like what is seems to be on the IHF website. The Center has fundamental problems including collecting donations for non-existent projects, lacking a government license and producing cases of child pregnancy. Please read the letter on www.ihf-volunteers.info. For more information and visual material, you may join our Facebook Group titled "Commentary on the International Humanity Foundation (IHF)" and read the personal blog on www.travelpod.com/members/muratcan.

As I have never taught classes before, it definitely presented challenges that I wasn't quite prepared for. It was frustrating at times but overall my 6 months of volunteer teaching English/Maths/Computers was so rewarding, I even came back a second time! Thank you IHF Jakarta! Kelly

Volunteering at Jakarta center | Rating: 1
At the moment I am volunteering at the Jakarta center and I am very happy to be able to share my experience with you about International Humanity Foundation. My daily routine consists of local and international tasks. For local task, I teach different levels of English. I enjoy preparing for my classes and being able to help children to improve their English skills. For International task I have the opportunity to help by trying to get sponsorship, new volunteers, organizing events, etc. Life at the center is very busy and everyday I learn something new about the kids, Indonesian customs, traditions and IHF functions. Thanks to our center directors everything is very organized, disciplined. At the center we live like a big family, we share our daily routine, we organize family meetings, do our daily activities, play various games, do aerobic, on our day off we go sightseeing and enjoy being together. I am very thankful to IHF for this opportunity and I am very happy to be able to work with them.

I'm volunteering at the IHF centre in Banda Aceh, and it's just an incredible set-up here. We have Maths, English and Computer classes 6 days a week, the kids are so well cared for, they go to school, do their homework, play games and are happy. IHF's volunteers do the admin tasks for the charity so that all the sponsor and donor money gets to go straight to the children. I'm so happy to be able to volunteer here!

My experience Chiang Rai Orphanage | Rating: 1
My name is Claire, I'm 23 from London. After graduating from university I wanted to do some traveling; as I would be going solo, I chose Thailand. Though I also wanted to do some worthwhile volunteering with children with people I respected. Whilst researching, I had stumbled across IHF and I am so glad I did. Before I got on a plane, I was assigned to three international task teams to which I dedicated an hour or two a week. As I got to work, I began to realize what a network of dedicated people are behind IHF. It took a bit of getting used to but I liked that the organization was purely volunteer run - and I was now a part of this!! I was to spend a month at the Chiang Rai Orphanage before I went backpacking through Thailand, it was good grounding for me before I set off on my travels. Meeting the children was wonderful and I enjoyed teaching them English. My international hours became a four hour daily task as well as now having local hours - and I felt it was all worthwhile. It has been an intense and unique experience living in the orphanage and working for IHF, and a brilliant opportunity to really see how a dedicated non profit organization functions. I managed to relax and do a bit of sigh-seeing on my day's off which was lovely - especially a day trek into the jungle where I got to see exactly the type of hill tribe villages where these children are from. It was hard to hear about some of the backgrounds they were saved from but so inspiring to see how they enjoy life everyday now. If you are thinking about joining the International Humanity Foundation, just do it.

On line volunteering helps | Rating: 1
I joined for IHF a month ago. Since then I'm doing weekly on line work for them and it really helps...for me as well , to feel better and to meet overgoing and nice people withing the orgnization. I am doing my pretrip hours before travveling to a center to begin my on site volunteer work...I'm really excited about that as well. But we need some more people as we are also...I hope more young ones begin to think as we do , and join to us to help children and learn about poverty.

Volunteering in Banda Aceh and Nakuru | Rating: 0.9
I joined IHF almost a year and a half ago now, and have had the most fantastic experience with them. Just over a year ago I volunteered at their centre in Banda Aceh, Indonesia, for one month and I very recently started my role as centre director in Nakuru, Kenya. IHF has provided me with a challenging yet rewarding, life changing and irreplaceable experience. I would happily recommend joining IHF. While , due to IHF having very few paid staff, there may be slight inefficiencies in the admin and running of the organisation, this minimal number of paid staff makes IHF what it is: an open, transparent and honest grassroots organisation. I personally struggle to find any other organisation I can trust as much as I can IHF.

Current Job Openings (Paid Positions)
Volunteer Nurse needed for Children’s Home in Kenya needed in Nakuru, Kenya
Job Description: This is an unpaid position. The International Humanity Foundation (IHF) provides a home for children at its center in Nakuru, Kenya. This facility has around 65 children ranging from the age of 6 – 19 years. We have basic medicines and facilities necessary to provide first aid and intervention for common childhood illnesses. We need a nursing volunteer who can provide medical care, assist in health education programs with the children and give counseling support. For more serious conditions or emergencies, the Center Nurse would accompany the child to the nearest hospital in Nakuru. The busiest time for the Center Nurse will be 3pm - 9pm weekday evenings and weekends when the children are not at school. This is a residential volunteer role. Candidate Qualifications: A Registered Nurse or equivalent with specialization in children’s health or community nursing would be essential. A willingness to pitch in with the wider work within the center to support the children and the ability to live in basic conditions is also required. This is an ideal position for a newly qualified nurse who would like to gain work experience or experience of working in another country/culture. This is a hugely fulfilling role in a center that has a desperate need for this assistance. Our children are all part of an extended family from East Pokot and are serious about improving their lives and taking their learning back to their community. They deserve a volunteer who will provide not just excellent clinical care, but also warmth and a genuine concern for their well-being. We provide basic accommodation and food at our centers, where you will live with your co-workers and the children. Unfortunately, as a nonprofit, we are unable to provide these amenities freely and we charge a minimal cost of $75 per week for the first four weeks, $55 per week for the fifth through twelfth weeks and no cost from the thirteenth week on. These costs are to cover room and board, both very simple. We are not able to cover travel or insurance expenses or any other related expenses, but we will help you with your travel and visa planning. We will also work with your university to meet requirements (if applicable) for you to secure credit or external funding when possible. Please familiarize yourself further with our organization on our website www.ihfonline.org and our blog http://ihfblog.wordpress.com/home/. Learn more by reading our annual report at http://hosted.verticalresponse.com/1317609/e36bb30bf9/TEST/TEST/. We were given a 2013 Inspiring Story -- Responsible Tourism Award! Read more about it at http://tourism.wildasia.org/2556/2013-inspiring-stories-destinations/. See our great ratings at http://greatnonprofits.org/reviews/international-humanity-foundation-1/.

Mission Statement: (See Web Site For Updated Information)
Half of IHF's mission is to educate the poor and the other half is to educate the world about the poor. Our vision is to strive for a world of leaders and citizens who have interacted with, and are truly knowledgeable about the world's poor. We believe in a "pass it on" philosophy where education is free and available for all who seek it. Those of us who have received a free education pass it on by helping others less fortunate by teaching, interacting and learning. With just a few hours a week, our volunteers, children and sponsors are changing the world we live in.

IHF is a non-religious, non-political, non-profit organization that strongly believes in an equal opportunity for all and in preserving the cultures, traditions and beliefs of the marginalized communities it works in.

IHF's volunteers do the admin tasks for the charity so that all the sponsor and donor money gets to go straight to the children. I'm so happy to be able to volunteer here!

My experience Chiang Rai Orphanage | Rating: 1
My name is Claire, I'm 23 from London. After graduating from university I wanted to do some traveling; as I would be going solo, I chose Thailand. Though I also wanted to do some worthwhile volunteering with children with people I respected. Whilst researching, I had stumbled across IHF and I am so glad I did. Before I got on a plane, I was assigned to three international task teams to which I dedicated an hour or two a week. As I got to work, I began to realize what a network of dedicated people are behind IHF. It took a bit of getting used to but I liked that the organization was purely volunteer run - and I was now a part of this!! I was to spend a month at the Chiang Rai Orphanage before I went backpacking through Thailand, it was good grounding for me before I set off on my travels. Meeting the children was wonderful and I enjoyed teaching them English. My international hours became a four hour daily task as well as now having local hours - and I felt it was all worthwhile. It has been an intense and unique experience living in the orphanage and working for IHF, and a brilliant opportunity to really see how a dedicated non profit organization functions. I managed to relax and do a bit of sigh-seeing on my day's off which was lovely - especially a day trek into the jungle where I got to see exactly the type of hill tribe villages where these children are from. It was hard to hear about some of the backgrounds they were saved from but so inspiring to see how they enjoy life everyday now. If you are thinking about joining the International Humanity Foundation, just do it.

I joined for IHF a month ago. Since then I'm doing weekly on line work for them and it really helps...for me as well , to feel better and to meet overgoing and nice people withing the orgnization. I am doing my pretrip hours before travveling to a center to begin my on site volunteer work...I'm really excited about that as well. But we need some more people as we are also...I hope more young ones begin to think as we do , and join to us to help children and learn about poverty.

Volunteering in Banda Aceh and Nakuru | Rating: 0.9
I joined IHF almost a year and a half ago now, and have had the most fantastic experience with them. Just over a year ago I volunteered at their centre in Banda Aceh, Indonesia, for one month and I very recently started my role as centre director in Nakuru, Kenya. IHF has provided me with a challenging yet rewarding, life changing and irreplaceable experience. I would happily recommend joining IHF. While , due to IHF having very few paid staff, there may be slight inefficiencies in the admin and running of the organisation, this minimal number of paid staff makes IHF what it is: an open, transparent and honest grassroots organisation. I personally struggle to find any other organisation I can trust as much as I can IHF.

  Current Job Openings (Paid Positions)
Volunteer Nurse needed for Children’s Home in Kenya needed in Nakuru, Kenya
Job Description: This is an unpaid position. The International Humanity Foundation (IHF) provides a home for children at its center in Nakuru, Kenya. This facility has around 65 children ranging from the age of 6 – 19 years. We have basic medicines and facilities necessary to provide first aid and intervention for common childhood illnesses. We need a nursing volunteer who can provide medical care, assist in health education programs with the children and give counseling support. For more serious conditions or emergencies, the Center Nurse would accompany the child to the nearest hospital in Nakuru. The busiest time for the Center Nurse will be 3pm - 9pm weekday evenings and weekends when the children are not at school. This is a residential volunteer role. Candidate Qualifications: A Registered Nurse or equivalent with specialization in children’s health or community nursing would be essential. A willingness to pitch in with the wider work within the center to support the children and the ability to live in basic conditions is also required. This is an ideal position for a newly qualified nurse who would like to gain work experience or experience of working in another country/culture. This is a hugely fulfilling role in a center that has a desperate need for this assistance. Our children are all part of an extended family from East Pokot and are serious about improving their lives and taking their learning back to their community. They deserve a volunteer who will provide not just excellent clinical care, but also warmth and a genuine concern for their well-being. We provide basic accommodation and food at our centers, where you will live with your co-workers and the children. Unfortunately, as a nonprofit, we are unable to provide these amenities freely and we charge a minimal cost of $75 per week for the first four weeks, $55 per week for the fifth through twelfth weeks and no cost from the thirteenth week on. These costs are to cover room and board, both very simple. We are not able to cover travel or insurance expenses or any other related expenses, but we will help you with your travel and visa planning. We will also work with your university to meet requirements (if applicable) for you to secure credit or external funding when possible. Please familiarize yourself further with our organization on our website www.ihfonline.org and our blog http://ihfblog.wordpress.com/home/. Learn more by reading our annual report at http://hosted.verticalresponse.com/1317609/e36bb30bf9/TEST/TEST/. We were given a 2013 Inspiring Story -- Responsible Tourism Award!

Mission Statement: (See Web Site For Updated Information)
Half of IHF's mission is to educate the poor and the other half is to educate the world about the poor. Our vision is to strive for a world of leaders and citizens who have interacted with, and are truly knowledgeable about the world's poor. We believe in a "pass it on" philosophy where education is free and available for all who seek it. Those of us who have received a free education pass it on by helping others less fortunate by teaching, interacting and learning. With just a few hours a week, our volunteers, children and sponsors are changing the world we live in.

IHF is a non-religious, non-political, non-profit organization that strongly believes in an equal opportunity for all and in preserving the cultures, traditions and beliefs of the marginalized communities it works in.

A Truly Rewarding Experience | Rating: 1
I am currently volunteering with the International Humanity Foundation in Bali, Indonesia. I can honestly say it has been the most eye-opening and rewarding experience of my life. Away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas, you see the true poverty in which many people of Bali live. For those children and their families living in remote areas where there is little or no infrastructure, IHF provides much needed support. By providing free lessons in English, maths and computer skills IHF makes a real difference to the lives of these children. The centre is a safe and caring environment where the children are happy to come, and they light up our day! It is a joy to see them so eager to learn and it is a pleasure to see them interact with their friends in such a friendly environment. If you are undecided about volunteering, let me assure you that it is the best thing I have ever done! There are certainly challenges involved, but if you are not adverse to hard work and you truly want to open your eyes to how most of the world lives, please consider dedicating your time and effort to IHF.

Commentary on the International Humanity Foundation (IHF) | Rating: 0.1
We strongly believe in transparency and that everyone involved with IHF has the right to know what exactly is happening at their centers. In summary, the IHF Center in Nakuru, Kenya is not like what is seems to be on the IHF website. The Center has fundamental problems including collecting donations for non-existent projects, lacking a government license and producing cases of child pregnancy. Please read the letter on www.ihf-volunteers.info. For more information and visual material, you may join our Facebook Group titled "Commentary on the International Humanity Foundation (IHF)" and read the personal blog on www.travelpod.com/members/muratcan.

Volunteering at Jakarta center | Rating: 1
At the moment I am volunteering at the Jakarta center and I am very happy to be able to share my experience with you about International Humanity Foundation. My daily routine consists of local and international tasks. For local task, I teach different levels of English. I enjoy preparing for my classes and being able to help children to improve their English skills. For International task I have the opportunity to help by trying to get sponsorship, new volunteers, organizing events, etc. Life at the center is very busy and everyday I learn something new about the kids, Indonesian customs, traditions and IHF functions. Thanks to our center directors everything is very organized, disciplined. At the center we live like a big family, we share our daily routine, we organize family meetings, do our daily activities, play various games, do aerobic, on our day off we go sightseeing and enjoy being together. I am very thankful to IHF for this opportunity and I am very happy to be able to work with them.

This is an ideal position for a newly qualified nurse who would like to gain work experience or experience of working in another country/culture. This is a hugely fulfilling role in a center that has a desperate need for this assistance. Our children are all part of an extended family from East Pokot and are serious about improving their lives and taking their learning back to their community. They deserve a volunteer who will provide not just excellent clinical care, but also warmth and a genuine concern for their well-being. We provide basic accommodation and food at our centers, where you will live with your co-workers and the children. Unfortunately, as a nonprofit, we are unable to provide these amenities freely and we charge a minimal cost of $75 per week for the first four weeks, $55 per week for the fifth through twelfth weeks and no cost from the thirteenth week on. These costs are to cover room and board, both very simple. We are not able to cover travel or insurance expenses or any other related expenses, but we will help you with your travel and visa planning. We will also work with your university to meet requirements (if applicable) for you to secure credit or external funding when possible. Please familiarize yourself further with our organization on our website www.ihfonline.org and our blog http://ihfblog.wordpress.com/home/. Learn more by reading our annual report at http://hosted.verticalresponse.com/1317609/e36bb30bf9/TEST/TEST/. We were given a 2013 Inspiring Story -- Responsible Tourism Award!

Mission Statement: (See Web Site For Updated Information)
Half of IHF's mission is to educate the poor and the other half is to educate the world about the poor. Our vision is to strive for a world of leaders and citizens who have interacted with, and are truly knowledgeable about the world's poor. We believe in a "pass it on" philosophy where education is free and available for all who seek it. Those of us who have received a free education pass it on by helping others less fortunate by teaching, interacting and learning. With just a few hours a week, our volunteers, children and sponsors are changing the world we live in.

IHF is a non-religious, non-political, non-profit organization that strongly believes in an equal opportunity for all and in preserving the cultures, traditions and beliefs of the marginalized communities it works in.

A Truly Rewarding Experience | Rating: 1
I am currently volunteering with the International Humanity Foundation in Bali, Indonesia. I can honestly say it has been the most eye-opening and rewarding experience of my life. Away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas, you see the true poverty in which many people of Bali live. For those children and their families living in remote areas where there is little or no infrastructure, IHF provides much needed support. By providing free lessons in English, maths and computer skills IHF makes a real difference to the lives of these children. The centre is a safe and caring environment where the children are happy to come, and they light up our day! It is a joy to see them so eager to learn and it is a pleasure to see them interact with their friends in such a friendly environment. If you are undecided about volunteering, let me assure you that it is the best thing I have ever done! There are certainly challenges involved, but if you are not adverse to hard work and you truly want to open your eyes to how most of the world lives, please consider dedicating your time and effort to IHF.

We strongly believe in transparency and that everyone involved with IHF has the right to know what exactly is happening at their centers. In summary, the IHF Center in Nakuru, Kenya is not like what is seems to be on the IHF website. The Center has fundamental problems including collecting donations for non-existent projects, lacking a government license and producing cases of child pregnancy. Please read the letter on www.ihf-volunteers.info. For more information and visual material, you may join our Facebook Group titled "Commentary on the International Humanity Foundation (IHF)" and read the personal blog on www.travelpod.com/members/muratcan.

IHF Jakarta Volunteer | Rating: 0.9
As I have never taught classes before, it definitely presented challenges that I wasn't quite prepared for. It was frustrating at times but overall my 6 months of volunteer teaching English/Maths/Computers was so rewarding, I even came back a second time! Thank you IHF Jakarta! Kelly

Volunteering at Jakarta center | Rating: 1
At the moment I am volunteering at the Jakarta center and I am very happy to be able to share my experience with you about International Humanity Foundation. My daily routine consists of local and international tasks. For local task, I teach different levels of English. I enjoy preparing for my classes and being able to help children to improve their English skills. For International task I have the opportunity to help by trying to get sponsorship, new volunteers, organizing events, etc. Life at the center is very busy and everyday I learn something new about the kids, Indonesian customs, traditions and IHF functions. Thanks to our center directors everything is very organized, disciplined. At the center we live like a big family, we share our daily routine, we organize family meetings, do our daily activities, play various games, do aerobic, on our day off we go sightseeing and enjoy being together. I am very thankful to IHF for this opportunity and I am very happy to be able to work with them.

I'm volunteering at the IHF centre in Banda Aceh, and it's just an incredible set-up here. We have Maths, English and Computer classes 6 days a week, the kids are so well cared for, they go to school, do their homework, play games and are happy. IHF's volunteers do the admin tasks for the charity so that all the sponsor and donor money gets to go straight to the children. I'm so happy to be able to volunteer here!

My experience Chiang Rai Orphanage | Rating: 1
My name is Claire, I'm 23 from London. After graduating from university I wanted to do some traveling; as I would be going solo, I chose Thailand. Though I also wanted to do some worthwhile volunteering with children with people I respected. Whilst researching, I had stumbled across IHF and I am so glad I did. Before I got on a plane, I was assigned to three international task teams to which I dedicated an hour or two a week. As I got to work, I began to realize what a network of dedicated people are behind IHF. It took a bit of getting used to but I liked that the organization was purely volunteer run - and I was now a part of this!! I was to spend a month at the Chiang Rai Orphanage before I went backpacking through Thailand, it was good grounding for me before I set off on my travels. Meeting the children was wonderful and I enjoyed teaching them English. My international hours became a four hour daily task as well as now having local hours - and I felt it was all worthwhile. It has been an intense and unique experience living in the orphanage and working for IHF, and a brilliant opportunity to really see how a dedicated non profit organization functions. I managed to relax and do a bit of sigh-seeing on my day's off which was lovely - especially a day trek into the jungle where I got to see exactly the type of hill tribe villages where these children are from. It was hard to hear about some of the backgrounds they were saved from but so inspiring to see how they enjoy life everyday now. If you are thinking about joining the International Humanity Foundation, just do it.

On line volunteering helps | Rating: 1
I joined for IHF a month ago. Since then I'm doing weekly on line work for them and it really helps...for me as well , to feel better and to meet overgoing and nice people withing the orgnization. I am doing my pretrip hours before travveling to a center to begin my on site volunteer work...I'm really excited about that as well. But we need some more people as we are also...I hope more young ones begin to think as we do , and join to us to help children and learn about poverty.

Volunteering in Banda Aceh and Nakuru | Rating: 0.9
I joined IHF almost a year and a half ago now, and have had the most fantastic experience with them. Just over a year ago I volunteered at their centre in Banda Aceh, Indonesia, for one month and I very recently started my role as centre director in Nakuru, Kenya. IHF has provided me with a challenging yet rewarding, life changing and irreplaceable experience. I would happily recommend joining IHF. While , due to IHF having very few paid staff, there may be slight inefficiencies in the admin and running of the organisation, this minimal number of paid staff makes IHF what it is: an open, transparent and honest grassroots organisation. I personally struggle to find any other organisation I can trust as much as I can IHF.

  Current Job Openings (Paid Positions)
Volunteer Nurse needed for Children’s Home in Kenya needed in Nakuru, Kenya
Job Description: This is an unpaid position. The International Humanity Foundation (IHF) provides a home for children at its center in Nakuru, Kenya. This facility has around 65 children ranging from the age of 6 – 19 years. We have basic medicines and facilities necessary to provide first aid and intervention for common childhood illnesses. We need a nursing volunteer who can provide medical care, assist in health education programs with the children and give counseling support. For more serious conditions or emergencies, the Center Nurse would accompany the child to the nearest hospital in Nakuru. The busiest time for the Center Nurse will be 3pm - 9pm weekday evenings and weekends when the children are not at school. This is a residential volunteer role. Candidate Qualifications: A Registered Nurse or equivalent with specialization in children’s health or community nursing would be essential.

A Truly Rewarding Experience | Rating: 1
I am currently volunteering with the International Humanity Foundation in Bali, Indonesia. I can honestly say it has been the most eye-opening and rewarding experience of my life. Away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas, you see the true poverty in which many people of Bali live. For those children and their families living in remote areas where there is little or no infrastructure, IHF provides much needed support. By providing free lessons in English, maths and computer skills IHF makes a real difference to the lives of these children. The centre is a safe and caring environment where the children are happy to come, and they light up our day! It is a joy to see them so eager to learn and it is a pleasure to see them interact with their friends in such a friendly environment. If you are undecided about volunteering, let me assure you that it is the best thing I have ever done! There are certainly challenges involved, but if you are not adverse to hard work and you truly want to open your eyes to how most of the world lives, please consider dedicating your time and effort to IHF.

Commentary on the International Humanity Foundation (IHF) | Rating: 0.1
We strongly believe in transparency and that everyone involved with IHF has the right to know what exactly is happening at their centers. In summary, the IHF Center in Nakuru, Kenya is not like what is seems to be on the IHF website. The Center has fundamental problems including collecting donations for non-existent projects, lacking a government license and producing cases of child pregnancy. Please read the letter on www.ihf-volunteers.info. For more information and visual material, you may join our Facebook Group titled "Commentary on the International Humanity Foundation (IHF)" and read the personal blog on www.travelpod.com/members/muratcan.

IHF Jakarta Volunteer | Rating: 0.9
As I have never taught classes before, it definitely presented challenges that I wasn't quite prepared for. It was frustrating at times but overall my 6 months of volunteer teaching English/Maths/Computers was so rewarding, I even came back a second time! Thank you IHF Jakarta! Kelly

Volunteering at Jakarta center | Rating: 1
At the moment I am volunteering at the Jakarta center and I am very happy to be able to share my experience with you about International Humanity Foundation. My daily routine consists of local and international tasks. For local task, I teach different levels of English. I enjoy preparing for my classes and being able to help children to improve their English skills. For International task I have the opportunity to help by trying to get sponsorship, new volunteers, organizing events, etc. Life at the center is very busy and everyday I learn something new about the kids, Indonesian customs, traditions and IHF functions. Thanks to our center directors everything is very organized, disciplined. At the center we live like a big family, we share our daily routine, we organize family meetings, do our daily activities, play various games, do aerobic, on our day off we go sightseeing and enjoy being together. I am very thankful to IHF for this opportunity and I am very happy to be able to work with them.

A wonderful organisation! | Rating: 1
I'm volunteering at the IHF centre in Banda Aceh, and it's just an incredible set-up here. We have Maths, English and Computer classes 6 days a week, the kids are so well cared for, they go to school, do their homework, play games and are happy. IHF's volunteers do the admin tasks for the charity so that all the sponsor and donor money gets to go straight to the children. I'm so happy to be able to volunteer here!

My experience Chiang Rai Orphanage | Rating: 1
My name is Claire, I'm 23 from London. After graduating from university I wanted to do some traveling; as I would be going solo, I chose Thailand. Though I also wanted to do some worthwhile volunteering with children with people I respected. Whilst researching, I had stumbled across IHF and I am so glad I did. Before I got on a plane, I was assigned to three international task teams to which I dedicated an hour or two a week. As I got to work, I began to realize what a network of dedicated people are behind IHF. It took a bit of getting used to but I liked that the organization was purely volunteer run - and I was now a part of this!! I was to spend a month at the Chiang Rai Orphanage before I went backpacking through Thailand, it was good grounding for me before I set off on my travels. Meeting the children was wonderful and I enjoyed teaching them English. My international hours became a four hour daily task as well as now having local hours - and I felt it was all worthwhile. It has been an intense and unique experience living in the orphanage and working for IHF, and a brilliant opportunity to really see how a dedicated non profit organization functions. I managed to relax and do a bit of sigh-seeing on my day's off which was lovely - especially a day trek into the jungle where I got to see exactly the type of hill tribe villages where these children are from. It was hard to hear about some of the backgrounds they were saved from but so inspiring to see how they enjoy life everyday now. If you are thinking about joining the International Humanity Foundation, just do it.

On line volunteering helps | Rating: 1
I joined for IHF a month ago. Since then I'm doing weekly on line work for them and it really helps...for me as well , to feel better and to meet overgoing and nice people withing the orgnization. I am doing my pretrip hours before travveling to a center to begin my on site volunteer work...I'm really excited about that as well. But we need some more people as we are also...I hope more young ones begin to think as we do , and join to us to help children and learn about poverty.

Volunteering in Banda Aceh and Nakuru | Rating: 0.9
I joined IHF almost a year and a half ago now, and have had the most fantastic experience with them. Just over a year ago I volunteered at their centre in Banda Aceh, Indonesia, for one month and I very recently started my role as centre director in Nakuru, Kenya. IHF has provided me with a challenging yet rewarding, life changing and irreplaceable experience. I would happily recommend joining IHF. While , due to IHF having very few paid staff, there may be slight inefficiencies in the admin and running of the organisation, this minimal number of paid staff makes IHF what it is: an open, transparent and honest grassroots organisation. I personally struggle to find any other organisation I can trust as much as I can IHF.

  Current Job Openings (Paid Positions)
Volunteer Nurse needed for Children’s Home in Kenya needed in Nakuru, Kenya
Job Description: This is an unpaid position. The International Humanity Foundation (IHF) provides a home for children at its center in Nakuru, Kenya. This facility has around 65 children ranging from the age of 6 – 19 years. We have basic medicines and facilities necessary to provide first aid and intervention for common childhood illnesses. We need a nursing volunteer who can provide medical care, assist in health education programs with the children and give counseling support. For more serious conditions or emergencies, the Center Nurse would accompany the child to the nearest hospital in Nakuru. The busiest time for the Center Nurse will be 3pm - 9pm weekday evenings and weekends when the children are not at school. This is a residential volunteer role. Candidate Qualifications: A Registered Nurse or equivalent with specialization in children’s health or community nursing would be essential. A willingness to pitch in with the wider work within the center to support the children and the ability to live in basic conditions is also required. This is an ideal position for a newly qualified nurse who would like to gain work experience or experience of working in another country/culture. This is a hugely fulfilling role in a center that has a desperate need for this assistance. Our children are all part of an extended family from East Pokot and are serious about improving their lives and taking their learning back to their community. They deserve a volunteer who will provide not just excellent clinical care, but also warmth and a genuine concern for their well-being. We provide basic accommodation and food at our centers, where you will live with your co-workers and the children. Unfortunately, as a nonprofit, we are unable to provide these amenities freely and we charge a minimal cost of $75 per week for the first four weeks, $55 per week for the fifth through twelfth weeks and no cost from the thirteenth week on. These costs are to cover room and board, both very simple. We are not able to cover travel or insurance expenses or any other related expenses, but we will help you with your travel and visa planning. We will also work with your university to meet requirements (if applicable) for you to secure credit or external funding when possible. Please familiarize yourself further with our organization on our website www.ihfonline.org and our blog http://ihfblog.wordpress.com/home/. Learn more by reading our annual report at http://hosted.verticalresponse.com/1317609/e36bb30bf9/TEST/TEST/. We were given a 2013 Inspiring Story -- Responsible Tourism Award! Read more about it at http://tourism.wildasia.org/2556/2013-inspiring-stories-destinations/. See our great ratings at http://greatnonprofits.org/reviews/international-humanity-foundation-1/.

Mission Statement: (See Web Site For Updated Information)
Half of IHF's mission is to educate the poor and the other half is to educate the world about the poor. Our vision is to strive for a world of leaders and citizens who have interacted with, and are truly knowledgeable about the world's poor. We believe in a "pass it on" philosophy where education is free and available for all who seek it. Those of us who have received a free education pass it on by helping others less fortunate by teaching, interacting and learning. With just a few hours a week, our volunteers, children and sponsors are changing the world we live in.

IHF is a non-religious, non-political, non-profit organization that strongly believes in an equal opportunity for all and in preserving the cultures, traditions and beliefs of the marginalized communities it works in.

A Truly Rewarding Experience | Rating: 1
I am currently volunteering with the International Humanity Foundation in Bali, Indonesia. I can honestly say it has been the most eye-opening and rewarding experience of my life. Away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas, you see the true poverty in which many people of Bali live. For those children and their families living in remote areas where there is little or no infrastructure, IHF provides much needed support. By providing free lessons in English, maths and computer skills IHF makes a real difference to the lives of these children. The centre is a safe and caring environment where the children are happy to come, and they light up our day! It is a joy to see them so eager to learn and it is a pleasure to see them interact with their friends in such a friendly environment. If you are undecided about volunteering, let me assure you that it is the best thing I have ever done! There are certainly challenges involved, but if you are not adverse to hard work and you truly want to open your eyes to how most of the world lives, please consider dedicating your time and effort to IHF.

As I have never taught classes before, it definitely presented challenges that I wasn't quite prepared for. It was frustrating at times but overall my 6 months of volunteer teaching English/Maths/Computers was so rewarding, I even came back a second time! Thank you IHF Jakarta! Kelly

Volunteering at Jakarta center | Rating: 1
At the moment I am volunteering at the Jakarta center and I am very happy to be able to share my experience with you about International Humanity Foundation. My daily routine consists of local and international tasks. For local task, I teach different levels of English. I enjoy preparing for my classes and being able to help children to improve their English skills. For International task I have the opportunity to help by trying to get sponsorship, new volunteers, organizing events, etc. Life at the center is very busy and everyday I learn something new about the kids, Indonesian customs, traditions and IHF functions. Thanks to our center directors everything is very organized, disciplined. At the center we live like a big family, we share our daily routine, we organize family meetings, do our daily activities, play various games, do aerobic, on our day off we go sightseeing and enjoy being together. I am very thankful to IHF for this opportunity and I am very happy to be able to work with them.

I'm volunteering at the IHF centre in Banda Aceh, and it's just an incredible set-up here. We have Maths, English and Computer classes 6 days a week, the kids are so well cared for, they go to school, do their homework, play games and are happy. IHF's volunteers do the admin tasks for the charity so that all the sponsor and donor money gets to go straight to the children. I'm so happy to be able to volunteer here!

My experience Chiang Rai Orphanage | Rating: 1
My name is Claire, I'm 23 from London. After graduating from university I wanted to do some traveling; as I would be going solo, I chose Thailand. Though I also wanted to do some worthwhile volunteering with children with people I respected. Whilst researching, I had stumbled across IHF and I am so glad I did. Before I got on a plane, I was assigned to three international task teams to which I dedicated an hour or two a week. As I got to work, I began to realize what a network of dedicated people are behind IHF. It took a bit of getting used to but I liked that the organization was purely volunteer run - and I was now a part of this!! I was to spend a month at the Chiang Rai Orphanage before I went backpacking through Thailand, it was good grounding for me before I set off on my travels. Meeting the children was wonderful and I enjoyed teaching them English. My international hours became a four hour daily task as well as now having local hours - and I felt it was all worthwhile. It has been an intense and unique experience living in the orphanage and working for IHF, and a brilliant opportunity to really see how a dedicated non profit organization functions. I managed to relax and do a bit of sigh-seeing on my day's off which was lovely - especially a day trek into the jungle where I got to see exactly the type of hill tribe villages where these children are from. It was hard to hear about some of the backgrounds they were saved from but so inspiring to see how they enjoy life everyday now. If you are thinking about joining the International Humanity Foundation, just do it.

I joined for IHF a month ago. Since then I'm doing weekly on line work for them and it really helps...for me as well , to feel better and to meet overgoing and nice people withing the orgnization. I am doing my pretrip hours before travveling to a center to begin my on site volunteer work...I'm really excited about that as well. But we need some more people as we are also...I hope more young ones begin to think as we do , and join to us to help children and learn about poverty.

Volunteering in Banda Aceh and Nakuru | Rating: 0.9
I joined IHF almost a year and a half ago now, and have had the most fantastic experience with them. Just over a year ago I volunteered at their centre in Banda Aceh, Indonesia, for one month and I very recently started my role as centre director in Nakuru, Kenya. IHF has provided me with a challenging yet rewarding, life changing and irreplaceable experience. I would happily recommend joining IHF. While , due to IHF having very few paid staff, there may be slight inefficiencies in the admin and running of the organisation, this minimal number of paid staff makes IHF what it is: an open, transparent and honest grassroots organisation. I personally struggle to find any other organisation I can trust as much as I can IHF.

  Current Job Openings (Paid Positions)
Volunteer Nurse needed for Children’s Home in Kenya needed in Nakuru, Kenya
Job Description: This is an unpaid position. The International Humanity Foundation (IHF) provides a home for children at its center in Nakuru, Kenya. This facility has around 65 children ranging from the age of 6 – 19 years. We have basic medicines and facilities necessary to provide first aid and intervention for common childhood illnesses. We need a nursing volunteer who can provide medical care, assist in health education programs with the children and give counseling support. For more serious conditions or emergencies, the Center Nurse would accompany the child to the nearest hospital in Nakuru. The busiest time for the Center Nurse will be 3pm - 9pm weekday evenings and weekends when the children are not at school. This is a residential volunteer role. Candidate Qualifications: A Registered Nurse or equivalent with specialization in children’s health or community nursing would be essential. A willingness to pitch in with the wider work within the center to support the children and the ability to live in basic conditions is also required. This is an ideal position for a newly qualified nurse who would like to gain work experience or experience of working in another country/culture. This is a hugely fulfilling role in a center that has a desperate need for this assistance. Our children are all part of an extended family from East Pokot and are serious about improving their lives and taking their learning back to their community. They deserve a volunteer who will provide not just excellent clinical care, but also warmth and a genuine concern for their well-being. We provide basic accommodation and food at our centers, where you will live with your co-workers and the children. Unfortunately, as a nonprofit, we are unable to provide these amenities freely and we charge a minimal cost of $75 per week for the first four weeks, $55 per week for the fifth through twelfth weeks and no cost from the thirteenth week on. These costs are to cover room and board, both very simple. We are not able to cover travel or insurance expenses or any other related expenses, but we will help you with your travel and visa planning. We will also work with your university to meet requirements (if applicable) for you to secure credit or external funding when possible. Please familiarize yourself further with our organization on our website www.ihfonline.org and our blog http://ihfblog.wordpress.com/home/. Learn more by reading our annual report at http://hosted.verticalresponse.com/1317609/e36bb30bf9/TEST/TEST/. We were given a 2013 Inspiring Story -- Responsible Tourism Award!

Mission Statement: (See Web Site For Updated Information)
Half of IHF's mission is to educate the poor and the other half is to educate the world about the poor. Our vision is to strive for a world of leaders and citizens who have interacted with, and are truly knowledgeable about the world's poor. We believe in a "pass it on" philosophy where education is free and available for all who seek it. Those of us who have received a free education pass it on by helping others less fortunate by teaching, interacting and learning. With just a few hours a week, our volunteers, children and sponsors are changing the world we live in.

IHF is a non-religious, non-political, non-profit organization that strongly believes in an equal opportunity for all and in preserving the cultures, traditions and beliefs of the marginalized communities it works in.

I am very thankful to IHF for this opportunity and I am very happy to be able to work with them.

I'm volunteering at the IHF centre in Banda Aceh, and it's just an incredible set-up here. We have Maths, English and Computer classes 6 days a week, the kids are so well cared for, they go to school, do their homework, play games and are happy. IHF's volunteers do the admin tasks for the charity so that all the sponsor and donor money gets to go straight to the children. I'm so happy to be able to volunteer here!

My experience Chiang Rai Orphanage | Rating: 1
My name is Claire, I'm 23 from London. After graduating from university I wanted to do some traveling; as I would be going solo, I chose Thailand. Though I also wanted to do some worthwhile volunteering with children with people I respected. Whilst researching, I had stumbled across IHF and I am so glad I did. Before I got on a plane, I was assigned to three international task teams to which I dedicated an hour or two a week. As I got to work, I began to realize what a network of dedicated people are behind IHF. It took a bit of getting used to but I liked that the organization was purely volunteer run - and I was now a part of this!! I was to spend a month at the Chiang Rai Orphanage before I went backpacking through Thailand, it was good grounding for me before I set off on my travels. Meeting the children was wonderful and I enjoyed teaching them English. My international hours became a four hour daily task as well as now having local hours - and I felt it was all worthwhile. It has been an intense and unique experience living in the orphanage and working for IHF, and a brilliant opportunity to really see how a dedicated non profit organization functions. I managed to relax and do a bit of sigh-seeing on my day's off which was lovely - especially a day trek into the jungle where I got to see exactly the type of hill tribe villages where these children are from. It was hard to hear about some of the backgrounds they were saved from but so inspiring to see how they enjoy life everyday now. If you are thinking about joining the International Humanity Foundation, just do it.

I joined for IHF a month ago. Since then I'm doing weekly on line work for them and it really helps...for me as well , to feel better and to meet overgoing and nice people withing the orgnization. I am doing my pretrip hours before travveling to a center to begin my on site volunteer work...I'm really excited about that as well. But we need some more people as we are also...I hope more young ones begin to think as we do , and join to us to help children and learn about poverty.

Volunteering in Banda Aceh and Nakuru | Rating: 0.9
I joined IHF almost a year and a half ago now, and have had the most fantastic experience with them. Just over a year ago I volunteered at their centre in Banda Aceh, Indonesia, for one month and I very recently started my role as centre director in Nakuru, Kenya. IHF has provided me with a challenging yet rewarding, life changing and irreplaceable experience. I would happily recommend joining IHF. While , due to IHF having very few paid staff, there may be slight inefficiencies in the admin and running of the organisation, this minimal number of paid staff makes IHF what it is: an open, transparent and honest grassroots organisation. I personally struggle to find any other organisation I can trust as much as I can IHF.

  Current Job Openings (Paid Positions)
Volunteer Nurse needed for Children’s Home in Kenya needed in Nakuru, Kenya
Job Description: This is an unpaid position. The International Humanity Foundation (IHF) provides a home for children at its center in Nakuru, Kenya. This facility has around 65 children ranging from the age of 6 – 19 years. We have basic medicines and facilities necessary to provide first aid and intervention for common childhood illnesses. We need a nursing volunteer who can provide medical care, assist in health education programs with the children and give counseling support. For more serious conditions or emergencies, the Center Nurse would accompany the child to the nearest hospital in Nakuru. The busiest time for the Center Nurse will be 3pm - 9pm weekday evenings and weekends when the children are not at school. This is a residential volunteer role. Candidate Qualifications: A Registered Nurse or equivalent with specialization in children’s health or community nursing would be essential. A willingness to pitch in with the wider work within the center to support the children and the ability to live in basic conditions is also required. This is an ideal position for a newly qualified nurse who would like to gain work experience or experience of working in another country/culture. This is a hugely fulfilling role in a center that has a desperate need for this assistance. Our children are all part of an extended family from East Pokot and are serious about improving their lives and taking their learning back to their community. They deserve a volunteer who will provide not just excellent clinical care, but also warmth and a genuine concern for their well-being. We provide basic accommodation and food at our centers, where you will live with your co-workers and the children. Unfortunately, as a nonprofit, we are unable to provide these amenities freely and we charge a minimal cost of $75 per week for the first four weeks, $55 per week for the fifth through twelfth weeks and no cost from the thirteenth week on. These costs are to cover room and board, both very simple. We are not able to cover travel or insurance expenses or any other related expenses, but we will help you with your travel and visa planning. We will also work with your university to meet requirements (if applicable) for you to secure credit or external funding when possible. Please familiarize yourself further with our organization on our website www.ihfonline.org and our blog http://ihfblog.wordpress.com/home/. Learn more by reading our annual report at http://hosted.verticalresponse.com/1317609/e36bb30bf9/TEST/TEST/. We were given a 2013 Inspiring Story -- Responsible Tourism Award! Read more about it at http://tourism.wildasia.org/2556/2013-inspiring-stories-destinations/. See our great ratings at http://greatnonprofits.org/reviews/international-humanity-foundation-1/.

Mission Statement: (See Web Site For Updated Information)
Half of IHF's mission is to educate the poor and the other half is to educate the world about the poor. Our vision is to strive for a world of leaders and citizens who have interacted with, and are truly knowledgeable about the world's poor. We believe in a "pass it on" philosophy where education is free and available for all who seek it. Those of us who have received a free education pass it on by helping others less fortunate by teaching, interacting and learning. With just a few hours a week, our volunteers, children and sponsors are changing the world we live in.

IHF is a non-religious, non-political, non-profit organization that strongly believes in an equal opportunity for all and in preserving the cultures, traditions and beliefs of the marginalized communities it works in.

A Truly Rewarding Experience | Rating: 1
I am currently volunteering with the International Humanity Foundation in Bali, Indonesia. I can honestly say it has been the most eye-opening and rewarding experience of my life. Away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas, you see the true poverty in which many people of Bali live. For those children and their families living in remote areas where there is little or no infrastructure, IHF provides much needed support. By providing free lessons in English, maths and computer skills IHF makes a real difference to the lives of these children. The centre is a safe and caring environment where the children are happy to come, and they light up our day! It is a joy to see them so eager to learn and it is a pleasure to see them interact with their friends in such a friendly environment. If you are undecided about volunteering, let me assure you that it is the best thing I have ever done! There are certainly challenges involved, but if you are not adverse to hard work and you truly want to open your eyes to how most of the world lives, please consider dedicating your time and effort to IHF.

At the moment I am volunteering at the Jakarta center and I am very happy to be able to share my experience with you about International Humanity Foundation. My daily routine consists of local and international tasks. For local task, I teach different levels of English. I enjoy preparing for my classes and being able to help children to improve their English skills. For International task I have the opportunity to help by trying to get sponsorship, new volunteers, organizing events, etc. Life at the center is very busy and everyday I learn something new about the kids, Indonesian customs, traditions and IHF functions. Thanks to our center directors everything is very organized, disciplined. At the center we live like a big family, we share our daily routine, we organize family meetings, do our daily activities, play various games, do aerobic, on our day off we go sightseeing and enjoy being together.

It has been an intense and unique experience living in the orphanage and working for IHF, and a brilliant opportunity to really see how a dedicated non profit organization functions. I managed to relax and do a bit of sigh-seeing on my day's off which was lovely - especially a day trek into the jungle where I got to see exactly the type of hill tribe villages where these children are from. It was hard to hear about some of the backgrounds they were saved from but so inspiring to see how they enjoy life everyday now. If you are thinking about joining the International Humanity Foundation, just do it.

On line volunteering helps | Rating: 1
I joined for IHF a month ago. Since then I'm doing weekly on line work for them and it really helps...for me as well , to feel better and to meet overgoing and nice people withing the orgnization. I am doing my pretrip hours before travveling to a center to begin my on site volunteer work...I'm really excited about that as well. But we need some more people as we are also...I hope more young ones begin to think as we do , and join to us to help children and learn about poverty.

Volunteering in Banda Aceh and Nakuru | Rating: 0.9
I joined IHF almost a year and a half ago now, and have had the most fantastic experience with them. Just over a year ago I volunteered at their centre in Banda Aceh, Indonesia, for one month and I very recently started my role as centre director in Nakuru, Kenya. IHF has provided me with a challenging yet rewarding, life changing and irreplaceable experience. I would happily recommend joining IHF. While , due to IHF having very few paid staff, there may be slight inefficiencies in the admin and running of the organisation, this minimal number of paid staff makes IHF what it is: an open, transparent and honest grassroots organisation. I personally struggle to find any other organisation I can trust as much as I can IHF.

Volunteer Nurse needed for Children’s Home in Kenya needed in Nakuru, Kenya
Job Description: This is an unpaid position. The International Humanity Foundation (IHF) provides a home for children at its center in Nakuru, Kenya. This facility has around 65 children ranging from the age of 6 – 19 years. We have basic medicines and facilities necessary to provide first aid and intervention for common childhood illnesses. We need a nursing volunteer who can provide medical care, assist in health education programs with the children and give counseling support. For more serious conditions or emergencies, the Center Nurse would accompany the child to the nearest hospital in Nakuru. The busiest time for the Center Nurse will be 3pm - 9pm weekday evenings and weekends when the children are not at school. This is a residential volunteer role. Candidate Qualifications: A Registered Nurse or equivalent with specialization in children’s health or community nursing would be essential. A willingness to pitch in with the wider work within the center to support the children and the ability to live in basic conditions is also required. This is an ideal position for a newly qualified nurse who would like to gain work experience or experience of working in another country/culture. This is a hugely fulfilling role in a center that has a desperate need for this assistance. Our children are all part of an extended family from East Pokot and are serious about improving their lives and taking their learning back to their community. They deserve a volunteer who will provide not just excellent clinical care, but also warmth and a genuine concern for their well-being. We provide basic accommodation and food at our centers, where you will live with your co-workers and the children. Unfortunately, as a nonprofit, we are unable to provide these amenities freely and we charge a minimal cost of $75 per week for the first four weeks, $55 per week for the fifth through twelfth weeks and no cost from the thirteenth week on. These costs are to cover room and board, both very simple. We are not able to cover travel or insurance expenses or any other related expenses, but we will help you with your travel and visa planning. We will also work with your university to meet requirements (if applicable) for you to secure credit or external funding when possible. Please familiarize yourself further with our organization on our website www.ihfonline.org and our blog http://ihfblog.wordpress.com/home/.

Mission Statement: (See Web Site For Updated Information)
Half of IHF's mission is to educate the poor and the other half is to educate the world about the poor. Our vision is to strive for a world of leaders and citizens who have interacted with, and are truly knowledgeable about the world's poor. We believe in a "pass it on" philosophy where education is free and available for all who seek it. Those of us who have received a free education pass it on by helping others less fortunate by teaching, interacting and learning. With just a few hours a week, our volunteers, children and sponsors are changing the world we live in.

IHF is a non-religious, non-political, non-profit organization that strongly believes in an equal opportunity for all and in preserving the cultures, traditions and beliefs of the marginalized communities it works in.
