I Understand Suffering.
So They Can Thrive / Foundation First Inc. is a volunteer-run, non-profit established in 2011 by Azaria Grace. Our organization is committed to providing opportunities to communities in the greatest need So They Can Thrive.
Our focus is on:
When asked why Azaria felt compelled to launch a non-profit to provide humanitarian aid, she paused before responding. “Because I understand suffering.” Azaria’s journey has included her own share of suffering. Those personal travails shaped her heart and led her to a place where she could no longer overlook others’ pain. Azaria stepped up to be in service and continues her compassionate, courageous work today.
