Vacancy for IHF Co-Director (Volunteering)

If you’re looking for a long-term volunteering opportunity, the International Humanity Foundation is offering you the chance to help in our children’s home.


IHF is looking for hard-working, committed volunteers to help in our six centers in Thailand, Kenya and Indonesia. IHF provides education, and in some cases, homes, to children. IHF has no central headquarters; each center is a product of its environment and follows the cultural code and norms of its host country.


We have four centers in Indonesia, in Bali, Jakarta, Medan and Banda Aceh. Our Jakarta and Aceh centers provide homes to a small number of children, while all centers offer English, math and computer classes to disadvantaged children. With a population of over 240 million, Indonesia’s public education system often fails to give children a chance to escape the poverty they were born into. We fill that gap and give kids a chance to aim higher.


Our Thailand center is a home for hill-tribe children. Children from this marginalised community come to our center for a stable home and a chance for an education.


Our Kenya center is a children’s home and also provides emergency relief to the surrounding community. This is the biggest IHF center, with approximately 100 kids. The kids are from the marginalised Pokot tribe, whose conditions are amongst the worse in Kenya. Living conditions in this region are harsh, and we provide basic needs such as a home, food, and access to education to children who would otherwise go without. We also run livestock donation projects and other initiatives to relieve the extreme poverty where we can.


At the center, you will divide your time between caring for the children and working on international tasks. IHF is a grassroots, all-volunteer organisation with no central office, so all administration work is done in center. All volunteers manage one or more of our international task teams such as university relations, fundraising and media; working together online with volunteers in other centers. You will be assigned according to your experience. You must possess excellent time management skills.
Those who are secure without the comforts of home gain the most from this valuable opportunity. We are looking for applicants preferably with:

– A related university degree; eg. in social studies, language, teaching, medicine, law, social work

– Experience abroad; travel, working or volunteering

– 1-2 years working experience in any field

– Experience with teaching and/or children

Fluency in English, both written and spoken is essential. Those interested in volunteering at an IHF centre are required to complete a level of pre-trip duties in order to gain an understanding of how our organization functions.


Stipend: Volunteers must commit to serve at least a year at the center. Basic accommodation and food is provided by IHF. You are a volunteer at the center, and all local tasks completed are done so without pay. Volunteers who commit to serving one year or more will receive a small monthly stipend. It is broken down as follow:-


First 3 months: Training period – $20 per month


3-6 months: Assistant co-Director – $50 per month


6-9 months: Co-Director – $80 per month


9-12 months: Co-Director – $100 per month


This stipend results only from the international online work; not from any local tasks.


After one year there is the opportunity to become a full Director.


Strict IHF Policy: These stipends are fixed. They will not be raised for more experienced applicants, and everyone will be upgraded according to the timeframes outlined above, and no sooner. There are no exceptions to this, regardless of what may be the situation in the centre. We are an all-Volunteer organization and training and hands-on experience is paramount.


Please take the time to familiarize yourself further with our organization –  And to our blog

Check out your pantry or your fridge and imagine just throwing away one third of all the food that is in there. Imagine throwing away one third of the food in your shopping cart after paying for it. Or picture all those lunch trays at your school and imagine one third of them being wasted. Food waste is a massive global problem that has negative humanitarian, environmental and financial implications and schools are a huge part of this story. For instance, in England, schools throw out some 123,000 tonnes of food a year, costing around £250 million a year. If you are an American student, you are responsible for 67 pounds of discarded lunch waste every school year.

Think-eat-save Student Challenge is calling all food waste warriors in high schools and universities worldwide to fight food waste and compete for thousands of dollars of prizes. Your task is to uncover how much food gets wasted in your schools, organize a team and take action to reduce food waste. Take action by launching a team project that will prevent or reduce food waste. Raise awareness among students and teachers to stop wasting food. Spread the word to all your friends on your social media networks. If they choose your project, your team or school will receive a cash prize to further support your initiative.


This competition is open to all students at the secondary and university levels from any school worldwide. To participate, students must undertake an activity or a project that will address any of the following:

  • Assess the level of food waste that is generated by the school and identify/understand the causes of this;
  • Generate an idea or ideas for eliminating or reducing food waste in their schools (for example, better planning, preparation, storage, consumption of the food in their cafeterias; recycling or redistribution of left-overs; etc.) and undertaking a project to implement at least one of these;
  • Raise awareness in their schools or communities on the issue of food waste and why it should be reduced and eventually eliminated.


Three winning projects will be selected and will receive cash prizes as follow:

  • First place: US$ 5,000;
  • Second place: US$ 3,000;
  • Third place: US$ 2,000;


You can start your application by registering on the official website by clicking the “dig in” option. Once you have undertaken your chosen project or activity, come back to your account and report on the results of your action for evaluation.
