What they say about FAF

“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

“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

“Our experience in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Shanghai exceeded all expectations, especially the incredibly hospitality shown to us in Sanchung. What a special occasion!”

- William Carson, Coe College, August 2008

“Dear Patrick, I wish to thank you, FAF founder Cappy Devlin, and the Friendship Ambassadors staff for the courtesies extended to the Iowa Kids, their parents, and me during our concert opportunities in New York City at the United Nations and the Statue of Liberty. I also wish to thank you for the honor of performing in front of such a worldwide, appreciative audience at the Culture Night Banquet. It was truly a memorable night they and I will never forget. This was one of several tours we have taken with FAF and every tour has included memorable experiences still remembered by those who participated.” – Dale Cunion, Ex.Dir., The Iowa Kids, August 2008
