There is no monetary exchange between Trainees and Hosts! Sometimes it happens that hosts in poorer countries still ask for money to cover expenses related to the exchange.
We do not allow for money to change hands!
If you get such a request please inform us.
You can search for another host or reject the request. If you want to do this trip so badly ask for another way to compensate.
For example you could donate some clothes or agree to go to the local market to buy some food or useful items.
