Friendship Force International was founded in 1977 by Wayne Smith and was announced on March 1, 1977 by President Jimmy Carter. It is affiliated with no religious or political organizations and is non-profit. There are over 350 clubs around the world and the International Offices are located in Atlanta, Georgia.
By coming together at the personal level, Friendship Force participants get to know people whose lives are different from their own. An open mind and respect for other cultures become the foundations of friendships that often last a lifetime.
We believe every friendship formed across the barriers of nationality, language, religion or politics makes the world a better place.
