Thailand Legal Consultant - Make a Meaningful Impact from the Comfort of Your Own Home


IHF has no centralised administrative offices and thus relies on volunteers across the globe to help manage and support our international programs and projects remotely.

Our mission is to educate impoverished children—activating their highest potential—and also to educate global citizens through real life experiences, about the realities of impoverished communities and the value of other cultures.
  • Our At-Home Volunteers support this work remotely, from their homes around the world. An At-Home volunteer should have access to a dependable computer, wifi connection, and experience with Google Suites applications is a plus.
  • Details of all our volunteer programs can be found on our website |
