Once again, my fire Jeewan is here to let us know a little more about Uttarakhand Home Stay Scheme, which is a host place in the beautiful valley of Kanda, Uttarakhan (north India), that also helps to their community. For that, they run projects through their volunteers’ funds, knowledge, and skills. They also like toreach out to international students, volunteers, social activists, Eco and budget tourists.
They “not only provides the village with a much needed additional source of income but provides visitors with a chance to interact with the community gaining an insight into their way of life”.
