First Things Foundation asks hard working Westerners to give up their comfortable existence for at least two years. Why? First Things Foundation is a Health Project. We ask our field workers to become sherpas for the extreme poor because we know that by lending our lives to lessen the load on the poor, we begin a journey toward humility. Humility is the bedrock of gratitude, and gratitude is spiritual DNA manifested as joy. Our FTF Field Workers live humbly, spending months building relationships and identifying local people who have brilliant ideas.
We call these unique local men and women impresarios. They exist in every culture and in every impoverished community.
FTF Impresarios are change makers, and by offering them free, full-time consulting, a well crafted project profile and access to a host of interested investors, we lessen their load and create momentum for local economies. But as beautiful and important as this can be, our work does something even more profound. FTF invites us to acquire the medicine necessary for true human health; humility. FTF is a two-way Health Project indeed.
Help us help our impresarios build their dreams. Partner with us here.
