Host families

en English

During the Copenhagen Fellowship, Humanity in Action's international Fellows stay with local hosts. Being a host is an amazing opportunity to learn about new cultures and nationalities, to engage in discussions with new perspectives, and to make an important friend for life.

Testimonials from hosts

We are a family of five with two boys age 11 and 13 and a girl age 16. The last couple of yeras, we have hosted young students from Humantiy in Action with great success. It puts our normal family life in perspective to learn how other young people have grown up, and it always adds something constructive when another language is involved. As a host, it is also inpiring to get to know young, dedicated people and to follow along in Humanity in Action's program. It adds an extra dimension to the lightest month of the year, both for children and adults.
