Visiting Coventry in August, 2005 from Germany, the group is pictured here.


   The purpose of our groups is to improve our understanding of other cultures, customs and languages while creating lasting friendships and having the opportunity to travel at a very modest cost. We accomplish this by exchanging visits with the various groups. When our group visits abroad, we stay in the other group's homes and live and eat as they do. They plan trips and sightseeing tours for us and accompany us as interpreters and guides. In turn, we then host the other groups in our homes and do the same for them.    

  Our Groups

  General Information
Although the home base of the Coventry Friendship Link is in the Town of Coventry, Rhode Island, USA, it is not necessary that a member be a resident of Coventry.  We are always interested in new members from the local area (Scituate, West Warwick, Warwick, West Greenwich, and beyond).  We would also like to create new links both in the U.S. and other countries. If you are interested in joining our group or starting up a link exchange group, please email us at
