How to get there




You must be fluent in written and spoken English.

We value volunteers who are creative and innovative, willing to take responsibility and easily adapt to new conditions and unexpected situations.

The duration of the program is 4 weeks (fixed).

Minimum age 18 years old.


Each IHF center is a product of its environment and follows the cultural code and norms of its host country. So must our staff and interns. Our volunteers must have high inter-cultural sensitivity and be tolerant to different views and ways of life.





We provide basic accommodation and food at our centers, where you will live with your co-workers. Unfortunately, as a non-profit, we are unable to provide these amenities freely and we charge $75 per week.

We are not able to cover travel or insurance expenses or any other related costs, but we will help you with your travel and visa planning. We will also try to comply with guidelines to secure any grant or scholarship funding available at your university.





How much did it cost?



If you are interested in a longer, even more substantial experience, we also offer a 3-6 months Internship Program at Bali, Indonesia or Nakuru, Kenya. In this role, you will complete the four hours of international work and four hours of local work as part of the Work Study Program, but will have increased responsibility and more opportunity to particularize your tasks to your skills. If you are interested in a more involved experience, please apply for the Work Study Program and note your interest in the Internship Program. We will work with you to assess your skills and how you can best contribute your time.

You will leave IHF with new highly transferable skills, a better understanding of international NGOs, and an unforgettable experience that will last the rest of your life.

The conditions of the program:

The program is only available in Bali, Indonesia (3 months fixed) and Nakuru, Kenya (2-12 months)
