Mission: IHF focuses on educating and feeding children who come from the most marginalized and disadvantaged backgrounds. IHF has established children's homes and educational centers 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.

I work as a co-director for IHF in Nakuru, Kenya. I've been here for three months already and I can tell that joining this organization was a good decision to made. The team is very solid and everybody tries very hard to make the center a better place for the children. As a master's graduate in Conflict Resolution the opportunity to work hands-on for an organization such as International Humanity Foundation is very full-filling at the professional and also the human level. This is a huge learning experience which is already shaping the kind of person I aim to be. I would recommend any of the options (volunteer, work-study, co-director) that IHF offers to anyone interested in development.

Volunteering with IHF Bali has been great because it allows me to interact with a genuine part of the island. Life here is traditional, and the needs of the surroundings are in coherence with local customs. Volunteering with IHF also allows me to work with an NPO and to be apart of every part of the organization, it's an allrounded learning experience - albeit intense. Between teaching and tending to regular maintenance I get a chance to play with the children that visit our center, at those moments makes all the hard work worth it.
