Welcome to the Friendship Force International website and Press Center. We hope you find everything you need here to help us tell the FFI story.
We are very proud of our work and are constantly looking for ways to take our message to a larger audience and to connect even more people across the globe, in friendship.
In 2008 we launched a major re-branding effort, changing our look, logo, slogan, mission and vision in order to refresh our appeal to a younger demographic.
We have also created a new approach to travel with FFI, offering opportunities for ‘themed’ travel. Ambassadors can now choose between trips that focus on humanitarian themes; educational, environmental or cultural themes.
In the 1980’s Friendship Force was one of the first NGO’s to cross the Iron Curtain, breaking down barriers that separate people. Today, our FFI Clubs in Russia are among our strongest and most active in the world.
Today, we have similar opportunity with our Pilgrimage Project. Interfaith groups of Christians, Muslims and Jews are traveling together to sites sacred to all three traditions. These pilgrims return to their hometowns to continue the dialogue with on-going efforts in their communities.
We believe passionately that the work of connecting people at the prersona level, across the cultural, social, religious and language barriers that separate us, is more vital than ever. Our survival as a global village depends on it.
Thank you again for your interest in FFI. If we can do anything to assist you further, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
