KOJAIN has formed a host family network in North America, whereby Kachchhi Students coming from India for higher studies here can spend a few days and get themselves acclimatized before joining their institution of higher learning and also feel connected with the Kachchhi community here. This also should go a long way in helping them overcome their homesickness that some of them experience here.

The host families may also host Kachchhi Youths born and/or raised in the U.S., who are visiting other states for college search, job hunting or even for recreational purposes and desiring room and board on a very temporary basis (2 to 3 days).
