International Humanity Foundation

About Us

For over twenty years, IHF has offered children and adults (from young through retirement) venues for learning and safely practicing leadership skills. 
  IHF is a unique organization. It believes in absolute transparency and functions almost entirely through the efforts of its hundreds of unpaid volunteers from all over the world. Our volunteers give their time, skills, energy, and love, working toward a better world for all, one child, one human, at a time. We believe caring, quiet growth produces deep healthy roots.

WHO WE ARE

The International Humanity Foundation (IHF) is a 501 c3 International Non- profit, founded in 2001. We provide education and safe Children’s Homes to impoverished children in Indonesia, Kenya, and Thailand through our five (5) IHF Centers. We function entirely through the efforts of volunteers, sponsors, donors, and an Executive Leadership team from all over the world.

OUR MISSION

Our two-fold mission is (1) to Educate marginalized children—activating their highest potential and nurturing healthy, loving communities around them. The happiness of our worlds children rises above all political and religious differences; And equates to the quality of our worlds happiness tomorrow. — (2) to Educate global citizens through communication and real life experiences, (online and in person), about the realities of marginalized communities; while teaching practical skills in aiding needed efforts, thus giving voice to the voiceless. 

OUR VISION

“To develop global leaders with cross-cultural experiences, and respect for different cultures, from differing socioeconomic backgrounds, who are equipped to make decisions that serve and positively impact, promote, and protect the dignity and humanity of people everywhere.”

OUR EIGHT CORE VALUES

1. Children always come first

We exist first and foremost to meet the needs of the children we serve.

2. Education empowers.

We believe that education unlocks the door to greater potential and empowers people to make good decisions that lead to a brighter future for all of humankind.

3. Honesty is the only policy.

Authenticity, sincerity, and transparency are not only paramount, they’re non-negotiable.

4. Lead by example

We don’t point the finger and wait for others to take action, or only lead with our words; we are always ready to get our hands dirty and to show others how it’s done.

5. Celebrate Differences.

There’s a reason we see differently, our differences are not a liability, they are our strength.

6. Preserve culture.

We are not here to impose our cultural values on others, we are here to learn as much as we are here to give. We encourage others to discover and protect the inherent value of other cultures.

7. Leave your mark.

Each person has something to contribute, each person can leave this world a little better than they found it. The best way to leave your mark is by serving others.

8. Pass it on

Every child in IHF takes the 'Pass It On' vow seriously. Our grown IHF Children prove this by their life examples. Our IHF volunteers also pass on their life blessings: Teaching and sharing with children who may not otherwise have access to quality education, nutrition and safe housing.

PASS IT ON AND MAKE A LASTING IMPACT
