Meet the Team

Meet the team who have contributed to develop the Friendship Cards. Getting there has been quite a journey and we encountered  many challenges along the way. We would like to thank all the people who made this dream come true. Special thanks to all those who believed in us,  gave us ideas and supported the Foundation over the past years.

 

The concept will succeed if each one of us believes in contributing part of our life for the good of society. We therefore need volunteers who believe in the idea and share it with others.  Once Friendship Cards work for you, please pass it on, the true joy and happiness in a relationship comes from giving, from sharing your experiences with others, so they too can be happy.
