Kenyan Citizens: Come learn GLOBAL LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT at our Nakuru, Kenya center
Have you dreamt of being a Director of an institution, school or non-profit? While foreign legacy students pay for this service, Kenyan citizens receive training for free while being provided with a small stipend plus room and board.
The International Humanity Foundation (IHF) is an award winning International Non- profit, founded and active since 2001. Our two-fold mission is to (1) Educate impoverished children, activating their highest potential and nurturing healthy, loving communities around them.
(2) Educating global citizens through real life experiences, online and in person, about the realities of impoverished communities, practical skills in aiding needed efforts, and the value of other cultures. We offer children and adults from kindergarten through retirement venues for learning and safely practicing leadership skills.
Volunteers who sign up to donate their time at our IHF Kenya Center for the Global Leader Development (GLD) program make a very real impact during their stay participating in the various tasks.
As a GLD, you will participate in four hours of local on site tasks, in addition to four hours per day as a member of multiple International Online Teams.
