About us

 

Are you looking for a volunteer management opportunity?

 

IHF is looking for hard-working, dedicated volunteers to commit their time and talents for 3 months contract at our children’s home in Thailand.

 

Our center in Thailand is a home for five older children from a nearby hill tribe. Teenagers from this marginalized community come to our center for a stable home and the chance for an education. All our children go to schools outside of the center.

 Your role would include fostering a familial environment for the children, overseeing their education and managing the various needs and activities of the center.

 

IHF is a grassroots, all-volunteer organization with no central office, so co-Directors complete 4 hours of international work daily that consists of various administrative tasks.
