We have many opportunities for volunteers. If you’re interested or talented in a specific area, we most likely can use you! IHF is proud to work amongst various faiths and backgrounds.
At IHF we strive to give our volunteers the big-picture about world poverty and development. When you volunteer with us, we ask that you get involved in all aspects of our programs. If you are volunteering at one of our centers, this means that you will be involved in the hands-on teaching and care-giving, as well as the administration and general management of the organization. In this way, we aim to give you a better understanding about issues concerning modern development, education and non-profit organizations.
We have a great need for volunteers at our Thailand, Indonesia and Kenya centers, and can arrange a wonderful trip for you to serve on! The longer the better! If you are interested in volunteering either from home or at an IHF center, please fill out the appropriate application below and we will contact you as soon as possible.
All our volunteers will immediately be assigned a task that they can work on from home. This includes our applicants who are applying to volunteer at our centers: we ask At-Center volunteers to put in at least 8 hours on tasks before visiting our centers. These tasks take from 1 to 4 hours a week and vary from assisting with sponsor letters, media, accounting, promotional material, website maintenance and many other tasks. You will be able to choose which tasks you would like to help on. This work will help to introduce you to other IHF volunteers and to the organizational structure. It will also play a part in the application process, as it allows us to assess your unique skills and capabilities.
With all our volunteers from around the world dedicating a few hours of their time and expertise to IHF, we are able to keep our operational and administration costs to a minimum. This allows us to offer volunteering positions without charging high fees. We hope you will participate in IHF to make volunteering an affordable experience for everyone.
