In addition, you will provide the co-Directors with needs-based assistance in the daily maintenance of the centres, becoming a part of the IHF family and integral to the work we do.

In Indonesia, our centers offer unique insights into Balinese Hinduism, the busy capital of Jakarta, or the beautiful and wild Sumatra where Aceh and Medan centers are based.You will have plenty of time to visit these incredible settings, but work must remain a priority. By both volunteering and sightseeing, you will have a unique experience, and hopefully you will leave our center with a better understanding of your surroundings and IHF as an organisation.
