The organization was established primarily to facilitate the development of alliances among groups which in turn will allow for the participation in different activities intended to foster familial relationships and exchange of cultural mores among different communities. This will be achieved through visits and exchanges to other states and cities in the United States and Canada. Trips are planned to Lancaster, PA, New York City, NY; Lake George, NY and Toronto, Canada on an annual basis. We will plan and execute these sort of exchanges regularly, to allow our constituents opportunities to experience and explore outside of Massachusetts.
