Mission: IHF envisions a world in which leaders and citizens alike have interacted with and have an astute knowledge of the world's poorest and most marginalized populations. We believe that education should be freely available to all to all those who seek it. Our volunteers agree, and wish to "pass it on" by interacting, teaching and learning while at our centers in Thailand, Indonesia, and Kenya. With just a few hours a week, our volunteers, children and sponsors are changing the world we live in. International Humanity Foundation believes in absolute transparency and functions almost entirely through efforts of a hundred plus unpaid volunteers from around the world giving their time, skills, energy and love to help our family in Kenya, Thailand and Indonesia. IHF is led by Carol Sasaki, who founded IHF 30 years ago. IHF has offices in Indonesia, Kenya, Thailand and a small part-time volunteer office in San Diego, California. But our true workplace is online and around the world, consisting of people interested in learning about the world's varied cultures. IHF is a training ground for those hoping to learn leadership skills in reducing poverty and abuse. We believe the best teacher is honestly shared experience, especially among new and veteran volunteers alike. IHF has been run for many years only by Carol and locals around the centers who learn through trial and error. Recently however, volunteers worldwide have also joined in and gained knowledge through personal experience. 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.
