Become a Voluntourist
The International Humanity Foundation (IHF) is seeking forward-thinking, dynamic individuals of all ages/backgrounds to contribute to our education centers in Indonesia.
Teach English, organise workshops or activites, care for children
Assist with community outreach projects
Learn about poverty, development, and the value of education
Still have time to explore and travel
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 responsibilities will include teaching English, computer and math classes, assisting with the care of our children and organising activities. You will work four hours a day, six days a week. There is time to sightsee, but work remains a priority.
This is an ideal opportunity to gain experience in development firsthand, but still have time to explore the local area. With the chance to experience Balinese Hinduism, the busy capital of Jakarta or beautiful, wild Sumatra, Indonesia's rich and deep cultural diversity means each of our centers is unique.
