About Us

First Things Foundation sends folks to Sub-Saharan Africa on two-year missions of self-discovery via service to those in need; not to change the world but to re-discover what it means to be human. We have found that when we live simply, close our mouths and share in the experience of those who suffer we gain humility and acquire insights. Eventually we actually turn out to be assets for the poor. It's not rocket science: Good projects and healthy change always grow out of authentic, loving, dynamic relationships. People matter more than plans. With FTF your responsibilities will include learning languages, living simply, assisting local entrepreneurs and visionaries, and playing an integral part in the shaping of a beautiful startup not-for-profit. And you’ll be doing it with like-minded searchers.
