I’m Camille H.Despointes, the founder of World is a Village.


We are parents, travelers and entrepreneurs.

World is a Village is a growing team of 15 people from all around the world.

We are located in different offices between Paris, London, Madrid, Los Angeles and Munich.

With our multi-generational and multi-cultural team, we make sure to understand the needs and cultures of all our users.

We speak no less than 12 languages within the team. You can imagine how rich our discussions can get!

At World is a Village, families connect from all over the world to offer linguistic and cultural exchanges to children through trusted communities (companies, associations, corporations, schools, etc.).

What sets us apart from our competitors is the fluidity of our platform.

At World is a Village we highly encourage families to talk and get to know each other before any plan is set in stone. This ensures a personalized and therefore unique experience for your child. Whether your child is already a globetrotter or this is his or her first trip abroad.

Feel free to contact the World is a Village team if you have any questions. We are at your side at all times and want your experience to be a memorable one.
