About Us

IHF envisions a world in which leaders and citizens alike have interacted with and have an astute knowledge of the world’s poorest and most marginalized populations. We believe that education should be freely available to all to all those who seek it. Our volunteers agree, and wish to “pass it on” by interacting, teaching and learning during their time spent at our centers in Thailand, Indonesia, and Kenya. With just a few hours a week, our volunteers, children and sponsors are changing the world we live in.

IHF promotes self-sufficiency in the communities we work in by primarily focusing on the education, nutrition, and the care of children. IHF encourages understanding and empathy between youths and adults of all nations and religions in order to better prepare future leaders.

IHF has centers in Thailand, Kenya, and Indonesia. Though all of our centers have a primary focus on education, our Kenya & Thailand Centers are additionally Children’s Homes. Through our centers, we hope not only to educate our children in English, mathematics, and other disciplines, but in their self-worth as well.

We believe that by promoting cross-cultural communication and understanding among students and career professionals alike is a vital part of experiencing the diverse social tapestry of our world. As such, we delight in hosting Co-Directors, University Interns/Work Study students, and voluntourists at all of our centers.

  1. Hi! I am really interested in joining but was wondering whether we had to use the accommodation or if we could live somewhere else? I have family in Indonesia and would prefer to stay with them. Is this okay?
