FF Kitui Africa

March 15-April 13, 2017, Phill Price, Terri and Stan Holsinger traveled to FF Kitui, Kenya for 10 days on a Humanitarian Journey sponsored by FF Lincoln, NE and FF International. The journey was followed with a two-week safari into northern Tanzania.
This was an amazing adventure that included the construction of a small library, bringing bags of gently used library book and donating 60 goats to an HIV Orphanage village in eastern Kenya. Photos are here.

Friendship Force International

About Friendship Force
Be more than a tourist. Travel for good.
Friendship Force Sarasota is just one of 356 Friendship Force (FF) clubs active in 55 countries on 6 continents. See view all clubs, click here.
Click here to see all 2017 Exchanges Worldwide
Under the guidance of Friendship Force International (FFI) in Atlanta, Georgia, we learn about other cultures and experiences the only real way you can and that is by sharing their roof and putting your feet under their table. At first you may be hesitant, especially if you aren't fluent in another language, but it can be a great and rewarding experience to join in their daily activities and specially planned events. After making these special friendship and exchanging cultures, your hosts will in turn want to visit our club and learn more about us--much more than can be found in a travel guide or on the internet. As other clubs around the world learn more about our beautiful part of the world, they will also want to visit us and we in turn will visit them, exchanging a world of experiences and friends that will last a lifetime. How we do this is by club 'exchanges,' the heart of the Friendship Force organization.
During a club exchange, club members or 'ambassadors' visit a club as a group of 15-25, sharing in group travel costs and having the comfort of traveling with friends. One of the club members serves as the exchange director (ED), to make sure that everyone gets there and back without a hitch. If you belong to an FF club, you can also join another club's exchange if they are going to a place you have always wanted to visit.
