What they say about FAF

“First of all, let me tell you that the tour was Wonderful! We couldn’t have asked for better more receptive audiences. Secondly, whatever you do … keep [FAF Artistic Director] Yin-Chu Jou. I couldn’t have asked for a more gracious, “Johnny on the spot”, kind, loving, helpful person to travel with! And I know very well that it takes a team to make something like this come to fruition. So THANK YOU ALL, FAF!”

- Kim Clayton, Founder and Director, Clayton Productions, August 2008

“This trip has been beyond our expectations thanks to Friendship Ambassadors. If EagleSong’s trip had consisted of nothing but Friday’s activities, it would have exceeded all expectations and been worthwhile. Never had we been in a tour where all performances were greeted with tears. Several times I found myself thinking how much better are tears of gratitude than tears of loss. Our entire community is buzzing with the stories of EagleSong’s great trip and how much it meant to the people in Louisiana! We feel like true ‘Friendship Ambassadors’ and thank you and the entire organization for making it possible.”

- Gary Fry, EagleSong Leader, April 2006

“I had thought that I had both seen and experienced nearly everything in my 25 years of traveling with the Friendship Ambassadors Foundation. Little did I know that a new, unique experience was awaiting myself and my performing troupe, Synergy, in the Philippines. Suffice it to say, my life has been altered forever. I commend the entire staff of FA for their efforts!”

- D Kim Clayton, Clayton Productions, Utah 2010

“I just wanted to let you know that the kids got back safely, happily. They all had really positive things to say about the trip. I thank you for putting this trip together and especially from an educational standpoint the kids really had an amazing experience. Thanks.”

- Jennifer Bell, Director of Foreign Languages, Nyack High School, February 2005
