What they say about FAF

“Friendship Ambassadors Foundation exchanges are a key part of our hope for opportunities to explore fresh paths of communication, information, and friendship. These initiatives will increase understanding, help eliminate barriers of culture and language, and enhance opportunities for peace. You have my appreciation and best wishes for success in your endeavors.”

- Former President Ronald Reagan

“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

“The Grosse Pointe South choir’s trip to NYC was well organized and very exciting. We so enjoyed the UN and the opportunity to sing for the UN (International) school … (T)he workshop with Gavin Creel – and then watching him in Hair – was an experience our students will never forget. I have traveled with FAF since 1976 and each trip has been a new and exciting experience. By the way, our rooms … were amazing. We were only a half of a block off Times Square and I could lie in my bed and watch Times Square’s ball turn from red, to blue, to green. What memories we will all have. Thank you.” – Ellen J. Bowen, Director of Choral Activities, Grosse Pointe South High School

“It’s been a joyful pleasure for me to encourage and financially support this work . . . I predict continuing success for this vital program!”

- Eleanor Roosevelt
