Based in the City of Chiang Rai in North Thailand it is close to the borders of both Myanmar and Laos, IHF manages a children’s home, child education and community development programs.
Our Thailand centre needs some renovation having housed 28 children up until early 2017. Our children had grown-up together and having now graduated them all, we are preparing the centre for the next generation of children.
We are looking for Volunteers with construction and building trade skills who are interested in staying at our center for an extended period. You will work with our Center Directors and will be willing to lead small to medium sized repair projects, training other volunteers as necessary.

In addition to making a notable difference in the lives of children, you will have plenty of time to explore the natural beauty of Indonesia.
