Everything you need to know about WIV points

Your company is a member of WORLD IS A VILLAGE. When you sign up, you’ll receive an initial amount of 1000 WIV points.

Each night you host is worth 100 WIV points.

Why WIV points?


WORLD IS A VILLAGE is a collaborative platform. We introduce community family members to each other to allow children to experience worldwide cultural and linguistic experiences.
As part of this collaborative approach, there is no money exchanged between families - you’ll just take turns hosting and sending your children to community family members.

To facilitate these exchanges and provide as many opportunities as possible, we created WIV points :

  • When you travel, you use your WIV points.
  • When you host, you earn 100 WIV points per night.

With WIV points, you are under no obligation to host a member of the family your child stayed with. The family that hosts your child won’t necessarily be the one their child stays with.

How do you use them?


If your child wants to leave for 10 days, you’ll need to exchange 1000 WIV points.
If you host a child for 15 days, you will receive 1500 points.

How can i get the WIV points I need?


By hosting before your child travels.
By purchasing the remaining WIV points on the WORLD IS A VILLAGE platform.
