First Things Foundation asks hard working westerners to give up their comfortable life for at least two years. Why? We ask them to become Sherpas for the extreme poor. We believe that by lending our lives to lessen the heavy load on the poor, we become entrepreneurs for the good. Our FTF Sherpas live humbly, spending months building relationships and following our four step poverty alleviation plan.
First among these steps is the identification of local people who have brilliant ideas. We call these unique men and women impresarios. They exist in every culture and in every impoverished community.
FTF Impresarios are change makers, and by offering them our expertise and access to a host of interested investors we lessen their load and create momentum for local economies and authentic, human centered change.
Help us help our impresarios build their dreams. Partner with us here.
