Half of IHF’s mission is to educate the poor and the other half is to educate the world about the poor. Our vision is to strive for a world of leaders and citizens who have interacted with, and are truly knowledgeable about the world’s poor. We believe in a “pass it on” philosophy where education is free and available for all who seek it. Those of us who have received a free education pass it on by helping others less fortunate by teaching, interacting and learning. With just a few hours a week, our volunteers, children and sponsors are changing the world we live in.
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.
IHF Background and History
International Humanity Foundation is a unique organization. It believes in absolute transparency and functions almost entirely through the efforts of its hundred plus unpaid volunteers from all over the world, who give their time, skills, energy and love to help us.
IHF is led by Shoaib Qureshi, working with various organizations. He has been doing the work of IHF for 24 years.
IHF has Pakistan, India, UK and USA. But our true workplace is online and all over the world, consisting of people like you who are interested in learning more about this world’s many varied cultures.
This structure means many of IHF’s volunteers never meet each other except by email. Some of them may choose to visit one of the orphanages or education centers or offices. Either way, they help to improve the lives of thousands of children.
IHF is a training ground for anyone wanting to learn leadership skills in reducing poverty and abuse. We believe the best teacher is honestly shared experience. We do not limit ourselves to accepting only experienced volunteers.
IHF has been run for years only by Shoaib Qureshi and locals around the centers who learn through trial and error. In the last few years, volunteers worldwide have also joined in and gained knowledge through personal experience.
So expect to encounter mistakes. We do.
Learning from them is an integral part of our mission:
“IHF strives to educate the poor and to teach the educated about the poor; for a world of more enlightened and experienced “everyday people” – leaders working to reduce poverty and abuse.”
We hope that you are excited to join our organization. We look forward to working with you.
