Community 1st Foundation (herein CFF) is a not-for-profit organization that addresses unequal learning opportunities for 21st-century skills for children and youth in marginalized communities.

We collaborate with community schools through visual and performing art programs using our curriculum based on leadership framework. 

Founded in September 2016, our first community center was a small room that served as a safe and positive learning space that offered remedial and extra classes to students post-school. We also utilized the space to practice for debate and drama competitions, in addition to students using it for self and group study and learning circles.

Two years later, in August 2018, we moved from a small room to a bigger space with three rooms. It was not only to expand the physical space but to also use the place for many more programs to build 21st century skills in the community members to develop leaders.

At present, we are conducting online art, dance, and counseling programs with children across three different schools. Over the years, we have impacted 500+ children and 50+ adults in the community.

We aim to continue our efforts to and bring more positive changes in the community with your help and support by working with 700 children and 4 youth leaders in the next year. 

Your contribution; in whatever capacity, will help us to further our cause.
