We are a group who seek to promote international friendship and understanding.

We meet together regularly for social events and fundraising and take part in exchange visits with similar groups from our twin cities and partner towns abroad.

This year marks the 75th Anniversary of the twinning link with Volgograd, our first twin city.

Olga Alyona Lawson, originally from Volgograd but now living in England, has close links with the Coventry Rotary Club and Coventry City Council, particularly Councillor John Mutton, who has visited Volgograd many times, most recently in November with two colleagues. CAIF were pleased to organise and host a presentation by Alyona of a slideshow about our twinning, a film made by students in their International Friendship Group and finally, a video link with Gymnasium no 5, when we were able to exchange continuing messages of peace and friendship.
