The Friendship Force believes in promoting International understanding Brisbane, Australia Friendship Exchange visits The Sedgwick County Zoo in Wichita, KS. through friendship. Our members host foreign club visitors in their homes and act as Ambassadors of friendship, traveling to other Friendship Force clubs worldwide, being hosted in members’ homes for one-week home stays. Ambassadors and hosts may not even speak the same language but hospitality, respect and openness are the bridges that help to create warm and lasting friendships.
