What they say about FAF

“…On the wonderful work that Friendship Ambassadors is accomplishing, I commend you for your leadership in promoting cultural exchange between people both young and old around the world. Hillary joins me in sending her best wishes.”

- Former President Bill Clinton

“2010 marks a decade of our work with Friendship Ambassadors, an infinitely imaginative, flexible, hard-working and communicative organization dedicated to peace through cultural exchange. Thanks to the truly global perspective and expertise of the FAF staff and administration, my colleagues and I at West Virginia Wesleyan College have been able to develop a meaningful curriculum abroad during the past ten years. For any project involving the education of young people abroad in the 21st century we can certainly recommend without reservation the skill, breadth of vision, and ever evolving, comprehensive contacts of Friendship Ambassadors.”

- Dr. Devon McNamara, Professor of English, West Virginia Wesleyan College, Buckhannon, West Virginia 2010

“Our concert tour show is entitled, ‘A Voice to the World.’ Did we accomplish that title on this tour with Friendship? Yes. Did we make a difference? Yes. Were our lives enriched by the experience? Yes. Have we helped bridge cultural gaps and understanding? Yes. Would I want Maria Mandova again as our guide? Absolutely! I would trust her with my life!”

- D. Kim Clayton, Synergy, August 2003

“The Alliance Francaise of Greenwich would like to thank you and your Artistic Director Yin-Chu Jou for your efforts in including [us] in the Greenwich Choral Society trip to France honoring the Greenwich/Vienne Sister City 2008 initiative… The trip w was seamless, due in no small part to your advance planning … We thank you and your team for making this historic trip so memorable.”

- Renee Ketcham, President, Alliance Francaise of Greenwich, July 2008
