What they say about FAF

“Thank you! I would love the opportunity to repay you for the invaluable gift you gave me!” “Thank you for the wonderful hospitality; you made it even more enjoyable. I hope our paths cross again.” “I felt like I was traveling with family!”

- Newman Theatre Tour Participants – Jewish Festival performances; August 1999

“The With One Dream… Rebuilding Hope in Haiti Benefit Concert sponsored by Friendship Ambassadors Foundation was not only a highlight – it was the best performance the World Children’s Choir sang in for the entire 2009-2010 concert season. I can still hear the voices of the children and the 150 wonderful young orchestra players performing With One Dream to conclude the concert. This is a very precious lifetime memory. We are still receiving compliments, and send our love and gratitude to you, Yin-Chu, and everyone at Friendship Ambassadors Foundation for making this event possible.”

- Sondra Harnes, Artistic Director, World Children’s Choir 2010

“We look forward to your assistance to groups seeking cultural counterparts. USIS will refer questions to your volunteers and staff for action. It’s good to know that the Foundation can be such a great help.”

- Mr. Greg Lagana, US Embassy Rome, February 1998

“Just wanted to let you know that the tour was fantastic. The concert venues … were exceptional and we had much better audiences than I expected. … an experience I know none of us will ever forget … Thank you so much for all of your hard work on this tour. Things went very smoothly. Our guides were wonderful and I know that you ordered the incredible weather just for us.”
