Welcome to the Friendship Force of Manitoba website. We would like to take this occasion to acquaint you with this exciting cultural travel and goodwill opportunity.
Friendship Force International was founded in 1977. It has grown since its inception to include over 300 active clubs in Canada, the United States, Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and South America. One of its major goals is to foster world peace and it approaches this goal by building global friendships between members of clubs through the experience of home stay exchanges.
It is hoped that world peace will be built "one friend at a time". Over 500,000 Ambassadors have travelled around the world experiencing countries and cultures not through "the window of a bus, but through the window of a home".
The Friendship Force of Manitoba was founded in 1997 and since that time has hosted numerous clubs from around the world, and our members have travelled to the four corners of the earth.
