Oneworldhosts (site no longer exists) is a neat little website that was started by a Baha’i from California, with the aim of helping Baha’is who are travelling around the world. I guess the youth would get the most out of it as travellers since they are ready pretty much to crash anywhere cheap and safe. And you can’t get much cheaper than free.Oneworldhosts matches together travellers who are looking for a place to stay with hosts who are willing to provide them accomodations. The great thing about this is that it brings together Baha’is from different parts of the world who may not have had the chance to meet otherwise.

I haven’t used this service myself but thought I would bring it to your attention since it is an individual initiative with the right motives and intentions. Whenever I can, I try to encourage such ventures because the Baha’i community needs more of them. Such an organization needs to garner critical mass to be able to really function at optimal. It isn’t there yet but with your help it will get there sooner rather than later.

So if you are travelling or are interested in hosting a traveller get registered with them.

Bon Voyage
