For over 15 years, Families in Global Transition has been the global leader in cross cultural education and training to support the entire expat family. FIGT offers information-packed conferences and year-round benefits through its Membership Program and expanding educational website.
As the leader of a global network, FIGT promotes the positive value of the international experience, and empowers the family unit and those who serve it before, during and after international transitions.
FIGT believes in the capacity of the expatriate and repatriate family to transition successfully, and to leverage the international experience for all of its human and global potential.

FIGT Cookbook - Where is Home?
If you were at the 2012 Annual Conference you may remember the photographic food quiz - in essence 'the taster' for a call for recipes for FIGT's first ever publication - a global cookbook called "Where is Home?" Well thanks to those of you who promptly gave us your recipes, and thanks to FIGT friends around the world, that cookbook has come to fruition! Copies were sold at the 2013 Annaul Conference, if you missed your chance to purchase this global cookbook or if you would like to learn more please click here.
