First Things Foundation
Our Field Workers spend two years in villages around the world, living no differently from the locals around them. They work local jobs, helping out farmers, carpenters, bakers, and often teach at local schools. When they aren't eating and drinking with their neighbors, they are spending their time becoming masters of the local language. The deep immersion changes the field worker. They let go of their preconceptions of what's good for the community. They start to think like the people around them. This process is a way of acquring humility, and also a way of becoming an asset for the communities they live in. Field Workers eventually assist local entrepreneurs (we call them impresarios) with making their dreams realities. By the end of two years, field workers are cultural and linguistic badasses who have played key roles in facilitating local projects.
