bringing people in touch with each other to understand each other better
- The Hospitality Club is a Peace Organization. Our main motivation to
start this project was one belief: we strongly believe that bringing
people in touch with each other on a one-to-one basis will help them
to understand each other better. Friendships will form and people
who have friends in other countries are less likely to support
politics of aggression against those countries and cultures.
Of course we are not so naive as to believe that the club will be
the answer totheglobal question of war and peace. But it is our
little contribution. The more people join our network and meet
people of other cultures through us, the bigger this contribution.
Building intercultural understanding is a process that will never
stop as long as humans live together on this planet.
We also try to do this peace work in the most down-to-earth and fun
way possible. Noone who joins the club is expected to share our
belief in peacebuilding. If you respect the people you meet through
the club and enjoy using it on your travels or at home, you are very
welcome. We think that intercultural understanding and friendships
will follow naturally.
The founders of the Hospitality Club have long been involved in
peace projects: they spent a year as AFS exchange students in other
countries and are volunteers for this large global exchange student
organization that was founded for the same reasons as the
We encourage any organization with similar aims to ours to use the
club as a tool for their members and supporters. We want to
integrate the club as much as possible into the global peace
movement. Get in touch with us , if you have ideas or questions
