What is a Community Homestay?
Gre Village Community Homestay is a cooperative enterprise, wholly owned and operated by the local villagers. Each homestay host contributes a portion of their earning to the Community Homestay Fund. The fund supports projects the benefit the whole village — like safe water infrastructure, waste management, clean cookstove construction, school improvements, and more.
How it Works:
Book your stay with a local family
Your host family will welcome you into their home! You’ll have a private room with a locking door and shared toilet (typically outdoors).
Your host earns income & funds development
Your host keeps a majority of the payment and contributes a portion back to the Community Homestay to fund development projects.
The whole community benefits
Your impact is felt beyond the homestay network. Hosts often hire neighbors and spend more at local shops, and homestay profits fund development projects that benefit all.
“Staying at a homestay, you know that a significant proportion of the money you spend is going straight into the pocket of an individual or community — rather than middlemen or multinational chains.”

Million stars won’t be enough:) Can’t wait to come back and I WILL!”
