What Is FOHTA?

From One Hand To AnOTHER (FOHTA) is a 501 C3 Not for Profit Foundation established by Pharrell Williams to provide educational S.T.E.A.M.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics, and Motivation) related tools needed for the future success of children.

FOHTA’s mission is to “Change the world one kid at a time by providing them the tools and resources to meet their unique potential.” Our learning programs are developed for underserved youth between the ages of 7 and 20 in at risk communities throughout the country. The vision of the organization is to modernize the community center concept by empowering kids to learn through new technologies, arts, and media, offering free after school programs and Summer of Innovation camps. Our vision can be implemented wherever children safely assemble. Programs and services are already engaging Virginia Beach children within a network of virtual centers in the city’s schools, churches and parks & recreation facilities.

Our curriculum includes project based learning activities, tutoring, life coaching and motivation lessons which supplement school education and give our children the resources they need to compete globally and keep our economy strong. Beginning in Virginia Beach, and ultimately reaching thousands of children across this nation, FOHTA is dedicated, with the help of our corporate and educational partners, to the development of a prepared workforce and the future leaders of America. FOHTA will demonstrate We Can Create Our Own Future!
