What they say about FAF

“I know of few projects today that succeed more in helping our young musicians do what they do best: sharing the magic & glory of music with their love of people & their zest for new adventures.”

- Alice Tully

“I commend FAF’s efforts to work with young people in the Balkans to help them find possible means and ways to peace and reconciliation. I would also wish to stress the importance of generous support for this project.”

- Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Martti Ahtisaari, Former President of Finland, 2008

“Having been made aware of the dangers of visiting Mexico, I was very concerned on the safety aspects. However, I knew immediately I entered the Arrivals Hall at the Airport in Mexico City and met Victor and his team from Friendship Ambassadors Foundation, that everything and everyone would be very safe and looked after well. The care and attention to detail of the team, and their willingness and ability to arrange for everyone to be ‘in the right place at the right time’ was exceptional. An added bonus was the tremendous knowledge of our guide from Mexico, who gave us some great information about the city as we traveled in the vehicle. I would recommend Friendship Ambassadors Foundation for their excellent service; they were wonderful, and made the experience of attending the United Nations DIP NGO Conference on Disarmament one to be remembered.”

- Kate Moore, Director of Membership, Soroptimist International

“What you are doing couldn’t be closer to my heart. I urge you to keep opening new doors of friendship wherever you travel and perform. Godspeed!”

- Leonard Bernstein
