The International Humanity Foundation (IHF) is seeking forward-thinking, dynamic individuals of all ages/backgrounds to contribute to our education centers in Indonesia as part of our Work-Study Volunteer Program.
Teaching, organising workshops, working with kids
Work with our Media, Fundraising and Online Outreach teams
Learn about poverty and development
Each IHF center is a product of its environment and follows the cultural code and norms of its host community, so there are different programs in each center. 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.
Your work as a volunteer with IHF will be divided between local and international tasks. Locals tasks are teaching English, computer and math classes, and assisting with the care of our children and organising activities. There are also additional projects to help with.
For your international tasks you will be assigned teams, made up of volunteers in all centers, working on administrative tasks for not just the center you are staying in, but the whole organisation. Teams include Online Outreach, Media and Fundraising. This is a great opportunity to experience not only the hands on, in-field side of development, but also the overall management and running of an international organisation. If you are not interested in these tasks, contact us about our Voluntourist program. Some pre-trip tasks must be completed in order to gain an understanding of the kind of work you will be doing.
