Somewhere in the world, a child needs your help. A child who needs just two weeks of your time. A child who is eager to learn something you already know. As a Voluntourist you will leave your mark on this child’s world, and in turn this child’s world will leave its mark on you.
The International Humanity Foundation (IHF) is looking for dynamic, forward-thinking individuals of all ages and backgrounds to contribute to our international centers as part of our Voluntourist program.
Our foundation has five centers across Indonesia, Kenya and Thailand. With no central office, our entire organisation is fueled by the efforts of volunteers, just like you, from all over the world. Volunteers commit a minimum of two weeks, though commitments can range up to several years.
Who We Are
The International Humanity Foundation (IHF) is an international non-religious, non-political, and non-profit organisation that functions through the efforts of volunteers, sponsors, donors, and an Executive Leadership team from all over the world.
We use our five IHF Centers to provide education and safe Children’s homes to impoverished children in Indonesia, Kenya, and Thailand.
Our Mission:
To educate impoverished children—activating their highest potential—and educate global citizens, through real life experiences, about the realities of impoverished communities, the value of other cultures, and the many responsibilities of running an international NGO.

What We Bring to the Table
Embark on a cultural journey. Immerse yourself in what it means to live like a local as you see first-hand the different realities of life in an impoverished community. We provide all our volunteers with basic accommodation and meals at all five of our IHF Centers. Volunteers live on site at our centers alongside their co-workers.

Most Affordable Volunteer Abroad Program
Our volunteer fees beat out even the most affordable Volunteer Abroad programs time after time. The weekly fee you pay will cover all accommodation costs as well as food at the IHF Center.
We provide you with these amenities for only:
● $150 per week, for an individual person;
● $200 per week, for married couples sharing a double bed (subjected to availability at the centers);
● $75 per week per child under the age of 16 coming with their families.
Additional Costs
You will also be responsible to cover your flight, visa, travel insurance, and any other related costs. However, you can count on our team to help you with travel and visa planning. We also do our best to help you comply with guidelines to secure any grant or scholarship funding available to you through your university or civic organisation.
