NGO Co-Directors Needed: Coordinate & Manage Non-Profit Children’s/Education Center (for Kenya and Indonesia)
Nairobi
Work must be done on site.

About us

Are you looking for a long-term volunteer management opportunity?

IHF is looking for hard-working, dedicated volunteers to commit their time and talents for one year in one of our children's home and education centers in Indonesia and Kenya.

In Indonesia, we have four education centers in Bali, Jakarta, Banda Aceh and Medan.
Our Jakarta center provides a home to a small number of children. All Indonesia centers hold English, Math and Computer classes for disadvantaged children aged 6-17 to supplement the limited Indonesian public education system. Your role would include teaching and supervising classes as well as organizing various activities at the center.

Our Kenya center in Nakuru is a home for children of various ages from the impoverished region of East Pokot. This is the biggest IHF center, with approximately 50 children. This is an extremely busy center and you will need to be flexible and prepared to work long hours.
We provide basic needs such as a home, food, and access to education for children who would otherwise go without. All our children go to schools outside of the center. We have a large farm and part of the role will be the management of the farm to produce food for the center.

Your role in Kenya center would include fostering a familiar environment for the children, overseeing their education and managing the various needs and activities in the center. However the role has many diverse dimensions and is an excellent opportunity to learn about different forms of international development practice.

IHF is a grassroots, all-volunteer organization with no central office, so co-Directors complete 4 hours of international work daily that consists of various administrative tasks.

About your role

● Your role will be to manage the day-to-day maintenance of the center's programs and initiatives alongside an international staff, in the effort to provide a better opportunity for children's futures. You are asked to complete at least 4 hours a day of local work and 4 hours a day of international work, 6 days a week.
● Your role in Indonesia would include teaching and supervising classes as well as organizing various activities at the centers.
● You will coordinate the short-term volunteers staying at your center, giving them support and organizing their local tasks.
● All co-Directors manage one or more of our international task teams, such as University Relations, Fundraising, Teacher Training or Media.
● You will work closely with co-Directors at other centers to manage these teams and will receive unique training in a multi-level, multifaceted system. You will be assigned your teams according to your experience and skills.
● Before arrival at the center, you will already become a part of the team by completing pre-trip tasks with our international teams to gain an understanding of the kind of work you will be doing.

This work can be challenging, but you will hone your time management skills and learn intimately how an NGO functions at both the ground and administrative levels. You will leave IHF with new highly transferable skills, a better understanding of international NGOs, and an unforgettable experience that will last the rest of your life.

Requirements

● Fluency in both written and spoken English is essential.
● Volunteers must commit to serve at least one year at the center.
● We value volunteers who are creative and innovative, willing to take responsibility and easily adapt to new conditions and unexpected situations.
● We welcome applicants with any background, but prefer degrees in social studies, language, education, medicine, law and social work.
● Experience traveling, working or volunteering abroad will be an asset.
● We require candidates have 1-2 years of working experience in any field.
● Experience with teaching and/or children is crucial.
● Minimum age requirement for Kenya is 24 and 22 for Indonesian centers.

Each IHF center is a product of its environment and follows the cultural code and norms of its host country. So must our staff. Our volunteers must have high intercultural sensitivity and be tolerant to different views and ways of life.

Stipend

Basic accommodation and food is provided by IHF. You are a volunteer at the center and all local tasks completed are done so without pay. As a co-Director, you will receive a small monthly stipend. This stipend results only from the international online work. The stipend is broken down as follows:

First 3 months: Training period $20 per month
3-6 months: Assistant co-Director $50 per month
6-9 months: Co-Director $80 per month
9-12 months: Co-Director $100 per month

Strict IHF Policy: These stipends are fixed. They will not be raised for more experienced applicants, and everyone will be upgraded according to the timeframes outlined above and no sooner. There are no exceptions to this, regardless of what may be the situation in the center.
