Currently studying medicine or on the way to being a medic?
|Currently studying medicine or on the way to being a medic? We need your expertise and vigour to Volunteer at one of the International Humanity Foundation Orphanages and Educational centers!
The International Humanity Foundation (IHF) is seeking forward-thinking, dynamic medic and nursing students to contribute to our orphanage and education centers in Kenya, Thailand and Indonesia.IHF has grown over the past 25 years under the visionary leadership of Carol Sasaki (CEO) and the dedication of thousands of volunteers from around the world.
IHF is distinct from other NGOs in this field as we practice the ‘Pass it on’ ethos in marginalized regions. We offer the privilege of education to those who without our organization could not reach it. IHF has no central headquarters, as each center is a product of its environment and follows the cultural code and norms of its host country. As a health specialist you will be given the opportunity to engage in community projects as well as teach health awareness and basic medical skills to our children, local staff and community at one of our centres in Asia or Africa. This may include hands on projects or a series of classes, as well as just talking to and being around the children in a more informal environment.
Cost: Upon acceptance as a Nurse/Medic, you will be required to pay a non-refundable deposit of USD $75 which will be credited toward your weekly fee upon arrival. Once at the center, work-study volunteers pay only USD $75 per week for the first four weeks, USD $55 per week for the fifth through twelfth weeks, and nothing from the thirteenth week on. These costs are to cover and room and board, both very simple.
Please take the time to familiarize yourself further with our organization - www.ihfonline.org. If you have any questions at this time, feel free to e-mail one of our helpful volunteers at- email@example.com

|Additional Skills Required:|
|As a medical volunteer, you will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience working with an international non-profit and in myriad scenes of poverty, which may be of use to those wishing to pursue tropical medicine, or indeed conducting some charity work abroad when they qualify.
At the centers, work-study volunteers divide their time between teaching and nurturing the children and working on international tasks. All volunteers participate on one or more of our international task teams such as university relations, media and fundraising and all medical student volunteers will automatically be placed on the medical team in order to utilise your expertise. Once at your nominated center, IHF requires its work-study volunteers to work eight hours a day on at-center and international tasks, six day a week. There is time to sightsee and tour the nation, but work is always the first priority.
Those who are secure without the comforts of home gain the most from this valuable opportunity. Although we are mainly seeking those with the above expertise, IHF is willing to consider those with transferable skills if you can demonstrate them during our application process. Fluency in English, both written and spoken is essential. Those interested in volunteering at an IHF centre are required to complete a level of pre-trip duties in order to gain an understanding of how grassroots organizations function.
