First Things Foundation asks hard working Westerners to give up their comfortable existence for at least two years. Why? We ask them to become sherpa's for the extreme poor. We believe that by lending our lives to lessen the load on the poor, we become entrepreneurs for the good. Our FTF Sherpas 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 and access to a host of interested investors, we lessen their load and create momentum for local economies and authentic change. But as beautiful and important as this can be, our work does something else. FTF creates change within us. We, too, are suffering and must be healed. Our work demands that we acquire the medicine necessary for true human health; humility.
Help us help our impresarios build their dreams. Partner with us here.
