First Things Foundation

 Visit Them in The Field

Why First Things Foundation?

Immersion is something that we at Gratitude Travels believe in, we have aimed to live these values ourselves and have spent many years living in remote countries immersed in foreign cultures and languages.
We believe this both broadens the mind as well as cements home truths that we may have forgotten along the road of our busy lives. 

The team at First Things truly live immersive values and cement these by placing field workers into economically impoverished communities around the world for a full two years. Their phased approach to immersion means that field workers only learn the local language and listen to the community's challenges before after several months progressively beginning to source out 'Impesarios' within the communities who First Things will then get behind to build bottom-up projects that benefit people meaningfully, long after indiviual field workers have left the countries.
