Changing the Way You See the World
The Friendship Force is a non-profit, non-sectarian, non-political home-hosting organization dedicated to the principle that each person can make a contribution to global goodwill.
The Aim of the Friendship Force
To foster peace and understanding throughout the world by means of personal contacts and shared experiences achieved through a progam of home hosting.
The first priority is to develop friendships and through this to generate understanding across cultural boundaries.
There are more than 350 clubs in 56 countries throughout the world.
The Friendship Force is not a travel club although the core activity is travelling in groups being home hosted with like minded people in other countries.
The Friendship Force was founded in the USA in 1977 and is coordinated from Atlanta, Georgia, USA.
WHAT IS AN EXCHANGE?
The main objective of the Friendship Force is to create an environment where personal friendships may be established between individuals despite the international barriers of race and language that separate people.
As a member of The Friendship Force
I recognise that I can make a difference.
I recognise that I have a mission.
That mission is to be a friend to the people of the world.
As I embark upon this adventure, I know that others will be watching me
I know that through my example to my own fellow citizens,
and the people of other nations,
the cause of friendship, love and peace will be furthered.
