Our New Home in Northern Ireland
In April 2019, Friends Forever Europe officially purchased the FFI Center at Annalong in Northern Ireland which is operated by Friends Forever International (FFI). In between Belfast and Dublin and at the base of the gorgeous Mourne Mountains yet on the sea, it’s a perfect location for us to continue to provide leadership development programs, as well as partner with like-minded organizations around the globe.
Stay at Annalong
For individuals, we are excited to offer private rentals of the dormitory and cottages to everyone in our FFI Family! We are also pleased to welcome NGOs, universities, and companies from around the world to host their conferences or partner with FFI to run leadership programs for their organizations. We can help craft a meaningful experience with programs and learning opportunities, or simply assist with your travel arrangments.
Unlike other rental properties and hostels, 100% of the revenue generated by the accommodations at the Center will be put towards carrying out the mission of FFI.
Our Europe/UK Hub
This center will be an important part of our programs in the coming years. Starting in 2019, Americas and Cyprus teams will live in Annalong for their Skill Building Phase, while Europe/UK teams will be able to host Team and Community Building Phase events there. It will also serve as a meeting place for the Alumni Movement!
We are very interested in collaborating with all other NGO's in Northern Ireland as we all work to build a stronger global community. Whether it is simply sharing our space or a more in-depth partnership, the Center is a new opportunity for organizations to come together.
