What they say about FAF

“The Youth Assembly 2005 was a successful and engaging event and the initiative that your organization put forth was much appreciated. Please accept this as an expression of WFUNA’s wishes for even deeper and continued cooperation with FAF in the future.”

- Incia Zaffar, World Federation of United Nations Associations

“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

“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

“What a wonderful, wonderful trip we had! I cannot thank you enough for all the hard work – everything was arranged very, very well… we felt so taken care of! With much gratitude and appreciation, Sondra Harnes”

- World Children’s Choir, WCC/FAF Peace Camp Director, August 2005
