"Experience different views. Discover common ground." That is the mission of the Friendship Force. Friendship Force International (https://www.friendshipforce.org/
) is a worldwide network of local clubs that promotes understanding by connecting people from different countries at the personal level. When local hosts open their homes to people from other countries and cultures true understanding can develop. The sharing of the routines of daily life help create lasting understanding and connections. It is NOT a tourist program, but provides the opportunity for persons throughout the world, independent of national politics or religious affiliation, to become ambassadors for their country Since its founding in 1977 FFI has brought together millions of people.
