From One Hand To Another



From One Hand To Another provides over 1,700 children across the U.S. with summer camps focused on S.T.E.A.M.M. Serving predominantly at-risk and low-income elementary and middle school students, FOHTA’s Summer of Innovation camps integrate project-based learning and mentorship across all of their curricula – all while being 100% free of charge for the families.

From One Hand To AnOTHER Inc. (FOHTA) was founded by internationally renowned musical artist and producer Pharrell Williams in 2008 because he believed that every child could be a success if only they had the right tools. Once Pharrell started traveling abroad utilizing his talents and gifts, he realized that this incredible opportunity of seeing the world was something he never had before. He realized that there were so many others who were not afforded the same opportunities. There was so much more outside of the neighborhood, within the world, that could grant amazing experiences, exposure to different cultures, ways of thinking and opportunities to broaden one’s education. That discovery changed his life and is the reason he created educational opportunities for others. Pharrell believes that every community with under-served youth should have access to activities and programs devoted to augmenting their learning experiences, and providing exposure to different technologies, arts, and resources. Pharrell says, “Our organization, From One Hand To AnOTHER, is committed to bringing kids experiences that ignite their passions, challenge their minds and prepare them for success.”



“To change the world one kid at a time by providing them the tools and resources to meet their unique potential.” – Pharrell
