Open Home Project

The Open Home Project was founded overnight in Berlin, Germany on March 15, 2011 as an immediate response to the earthquake and arising nuclear instability in Japan. We saw an urgent need to offer places for living abroad in a situation of uncertainty.

There was an immediate response from hosts throughout the world offering living places for guests from Japan. A strong sign of international solidarity and humanity was shown. 27 guests from Japan have taken advantage of the offer, mostly women and children, some being pregnant.
