The idea

The concept

Imagine arriving in a city like Paris or Mumbai and, instead of trying to find a taxi, there is somebody already waiting for you. Imagine that instead of going to eat at the place recommended by the guidebook, someone shows you their favourite restaurant. Imagine the experience staying as a personal guest of your new friend rather than sleeping in an impersonal hotel room. BeWelcome makes it possible.

Dreaming alone is not enough. That's why we have founded BeVolunteer, a non-profit organisation registered in Rennes, France. Through BeVolunteer's official statutes, we provide a basis for democratic decision making, financial transparency and information security so that we can protect our members and manage the project BeWelcome effectively.

Our little team of five tries to meet online once every month. Our next online public meeting is scheduled for Sunday, February 14th at 14.00 CET.
