First Things Foundation

First Things Foundation (FTF) sends members to live overseas in local communities, standing in the shoes of those with whom they work. Building relationships, little by little, is both the goal and the groundwork for success at FTF. Finally, our members overseas will return home. And when they do, it is our hope that they come back equipped to remind us about the simplicity of life and beauty of relationship. They believe that relationships are the foundation of meaningful life and a better world - The First Things. They demonstrate this belief by living humbly alongside locals in struggling communities. They build self-sustaining Project Development Hubs that unite local visionaries with the people and resources they need most.
