A little piece of the Old World comes back to America, to our very frantic and hectic lives.
The Kepi effect describes the personal transformation of the site coordinator as a result of their 18 month experience. This transformation becomes real in the lives of others when our site coordinators dedicate themselves to a myriad of activities including serving others as teachers in the FTF Fellows Program.
Attending a First Things Foundation kepi will help you understand why we exist as an entity. It will allow you, at least for one night, to stand with us as we go forward to Georgia, Ethiopia, Sierra Leone, Immokalee and points unknown. Friends of First Things Foundation host our kepis and fulfill the role of the tamada, the host of the party and the facilitator of toasts. As the host, you are encouraged to bring all friends and family to the table. The kepi is a place for introductions, reunions, stories, and reflections. It brings people together, and by experiencing a kepi, we hope to demonstrate the type of transformative action that can be taken by forming relationships with communities all over the world.
