What they say about FAF

“… Davina and Ildiko have been nothing short of delightful. They both have extended themselves beyond any expectations with courtesy, responsiveness, assistance and concern. I am extraordinarily impressed with not only what FAF does but with the members who support and run it.”

- Joan Klayton, Participant, Movement Laboratory, July 2007

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

- Martti Ahtisaari, Former Pres., Finland, Nobel Peace Prize Recipient 2008

“We are very pro-FAF. In today’s “make a buck at all costs” world, they are more concerned with service and furthering positive cultural exchanges as a means of creating a better world. Sounds kind of corny, but it’s the truth.”

- Kathy Shannon, West Virginia University, February 2000

“Our concert tour show is entitled, ‘A Voice to the World.’ Did we accomplish that title on this tour with Friendship? Yes. Did we make a difference? Yes. Were our lives enriched by the experience? Yes. Have we helped bridge cultural gaps and understanding? Yes. Would I want Maria Mandova again as our guide? Absolutely! I would trust her with my life!”

- D. Kim Clayton, Synergy, August 2003
