Experience the World 
with 
Friendship Force

Become a Host   


One of the best ways to promote global understanding across the barriers that separate people is to host an ambassador in your home. Show them your community, city, country and culture, and learn about theirs over meals, laughter, and shared experiences.


Travel the world   


Be welcomed into someone’s home. Immerse yourself in their local culture. Invite travelers

from other places into your own home and proudly share your culture with them.

Since 1977, the travel exchange movement pioneered by Friendship Force International has given people the unique opportunity to connect

in ways that transcend boundaries to promote goodwill, respect, and understanding.


This kind of intimate, life changing experience may not be for everyone, but for thousands of Friendship Force members worldwide, the personal relationships we’ve established are a powerful and authentic way to impact positive change and empathy around the world.


MAKE FRIENDS ACROSS THE WORLD


 Become an ambassador of the

 Friendship Force today.

CURRENT NEWSLETTER



 

Explore: We explore new  countries and regions. We explore new cultures and  new ways to connect across  the barriers that separate us.


Understand: By sharing a  home, meals, conversation  and everyday experiences,  people become friends,  seeing beyond governments and borders into the heart of  a country and its people. By combining home hospitality  with cultural exploration, we reach a new level of understanding.


  Serve: Exploration leads to  understanding. Understanding leads to an  acceptance of our common  humanity and the desire to  serve 

our global village –  with words and actions.

Exploring Malawi: The Education System and Cultural Traditions


The continent of Africa is comprised of 54 countries (or 55 or 56 depending on what source you read about disputed areas). 


Malawi is a landlocked country in southeastern Africa, bordered by Zambia to the northwest, Tanzania to the northeast and Mozambique to the south, southwest and southeast.  It is well-known for its smiling, friendly people.  Most importantly, it is known for its extraordinary freshwater lake, Lake Malawi, which dominates this landlocked country.


We have a delightful couple, recently married, who will talk to us about their life journeys, culture and homeland.
