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 our family in Kenya, Thailand and Indonesia.

IHF is led by Carol Sasaki, who moves between these homes as well as into outer areas, working with various tribes. She has been doing the work of IHF for 24 years. IHF has offices in Indonesia, Kenya, Thailand and a small part time volunteer office in San Diego, California, in the United States. 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 Carol 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.

    I have been desirous to work for IHF, with a higher preference for working in the centre in Thailand but I have never been given a chance. I am just wondering whether I will ever be given an opportunity to offer my service to this highly reputable humanitarian organisation, and when I will possibly be given such a chance. For sure IHF is doing a highly commendable work; and being a part of the team would give me much pleasure. MAY YOU ALL BE BLESSED. BYE
