The Community Homestay Network began as a part of our CSR initiative. Today, after receiving a Booking.com Booster grant to kick-start the platform, it has grown into an independent social enterprise that helps empower women all over Nepal. The platform creates opportunities for rural communities to connect with travelers creating economic stability. The company also sets up skills training classes, provides loans, medical care and education support to foster stronger communities through sustainable tourism.
