Actions That Commit Us

More specifically, Village Monde promotes the growth of sustainable tourism in remote areas as a source of development, sovereignty and pride for communities, and a source of discovery, inspiration and change for travellers seeking to meet new people, experience authenticity and share experiences.

Partnership with Nomad's Land

Nomad's Land and Village Monde have been working together since 2017 to promote sustainable tourism in Kyrgyzstan. The partnership has resulted in the development of Kyrgyzstan as a destination of the website, which in 2023 showcases 160 different homestays and tourism services in the country offered by local families.
