Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Education, Food, Food, Agriculture & Nutrition, Human Services, Primary & Elementary Schools, Secondary & High Schools

Mission: The International Humanity Foundation (IHF) is an international non-religious, non-political, and non-profit organization that functions through the efforts of volunteers, sponsors, and an Executive Leadership team from all over the world. We use our five (5) IHF Centers to provide education and safe-homes to impoverished children in Indonesia, Kenya, and Thailand. We are dedicated to using education to change the world—one child and one volunteer at a time. 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. Our Vision: To develop global leaders with cross-cultural experiences, and respect for different cultures, from differing socioeconomic backgrounds, who are equipped to make decisions that serve and positively impact, promote, and protect the dignity and humanity of people everywhere. Our 8 Core Values: Children always come first. We exist first and foremost to meet the needs of the children we serve. Education empowers. We believe that education unlocks the door to greater potential and empowers people to make good decisions that lead to a brighter future for all of humankind. Honesty is the only policy. Authenticity, sincerity, and transparency are not only paramount, they’re non-negotiable. Lead by example. We don’t point the finger and wait for others to take action, or only lead with our words; we are always ready to get our hands dirty and to show others how it’s done. Celebrate differences. There’s a reason we see differently, our differences are not a liability, they are our strength. Preserve culture. We are not here to impose our cultural values on others, we are here to learn as much as we are here to give. We encourage others to discover and protect the inherent value of other cultures. Leave your mark. Each person has something to contribute, each person can leave this world a little better than they found it. The best way to leave your mark is by serving others. Pass it on. We show our compassion for all of humanity when we take the time to teach others! Teaching children who may not otherwise have access to education, educating other people about the devastating effects of poverty around the world, and encouraging them to give and get involved are the best ways to pass it on and make a lasting impact.

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.
