We strive to ensure we are providing an ethical and responsible volunteer experience in the following ways:

  • Human Force camps are held at projects which have requested our intervention on specific tasks that they need a group of volunteers to complete.
  • Human Force volunteers do not replace paid employment opportunities for local people.
  • Human Force volunteers work alongside local staff in local placements.
  • Human Force works only with local organizations – usually members of the Susila Dharma network – and people living in the local community.
  • Human Force provides guidance to project leaders on best practice volunteer management.
  • Human Force manages the expectations of volunteers before they depart through clear communication and realistic descriptions.
  • Human Force provides thorough pre-departure support for volunteers through the provision of detailed program information and dedicated program coordinators.
  • Human Force screens volunteers and limits the number of volunteers.
  • Human Force volunteers must provide an original or a certified copy of a criminal background check.
  • Human Force coordinators regularly collect feedback from both projects and volunteers with a view to constantly improving our programmes.
  • Human Force is committed to keeping fees as low as possible; it does not make a profit – fees are set to cover running costs only, and ensure our hosts are never out of pocket.
