Our mission : Rescue Homeless Persons

Through our work, we contribute to build a world with more live-able cities for all, where everybody feels at home, where inclusion is mandatory and life is safe.

We envision a world where differences become a wealth, where local cultures are recognized and loved. A world where we love and help each other.

Every night booked on equals a decent and safe roof for homelesses

We provide you access to a community of local hosts that will welcome you, meet you and help you through our journey while traveling for work. They wish, as much as us, that poverty and homelessness disappears from their neighborhoods, that everyone lives safe and in dignity.

You, have the power to give a big help, to have a strong and positive social impact with your business trip. Everytime you book a stay with us and stay in a Tepee, your nights will be offered to a homeless family, or person, in need for safety and help.

Become Host in your city

Our organisation : All Associates

At believe employment is not the best solution for people to engage with their company. Instead we decided to work as a Cooperative Organisation.

We are all associates - with the same level of decision. Nobody is anybody's boss or manager and we're all in to coach each other on our core skills and bring everybody constructive feedbacks.

We are working 100% remotely because we trust each other and share the same purpose and vision for our actions, but don't wish to live the same lives, in the same cities nor countries. We give ourselves the freedom to be and work from wherever we want.
