In order to match people, we ask users of our website to fill in and submit a form.   There is a form for community ambassadors and a form for foreign visitors.  The data on the forms is not shared outside BWF and is deleted from the web database once a match is permanently made.    

The forms contain information such as:

  • Name
  • Local Address
  • Email Address
  • Phone number
  • Gender
  • Family Status
  • Occupation/Field of study
  • Hobbies/Interests
  • Dietary Restrictions if any

By filling out the form the user gives permission to BWF to use the defined email address for communication with them.
