International Field Worker
First Things Foundation asks hard working individuals to give up their comfortable existence for at least two years. Why? Because when we live simply and share in the experience of those who suffer we gain humility and acquire insights. We have found that when we close our mouths and quiet our minds we actually turn out to be assets for the poor.
Our model, built on ancient thought, has reminded us that self-knowledge comes from creative engagement, by responding to the demands of each day, by bearing one’s cross and sacrificing for others. Discovering depth and meaning is by necessity not easy, but how could it be?
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.
