Worthington International Friendship Association (WIFA)

The Worthington International Friendship Association (WIFA) fosters intercultural friendships through special events, delegation exchanges, and educational programming. In 2014, the Cities of Worthington and Sayama, Japan are celebrating their 15th anniversary as sister-cities. Since first establishing their friendship in 1993, hundreds of citizens, sports teams and city officials have visited each other’s countries to develop a mutual understanding. WIFA also coordinates cultural dinners, lectures and other international events. WIFA believes that understanding different cultures and customs is essential for living in the global community of the 21st century. For information call Anne Brown at (614) 854-7173 or email.
