Who we are

We are two friends from Britanny, living in Brocéliande, sharing the same passion for integration, hospitality and openness to the world. After welcoming teenagers from United States, Spain ans Australia into our homes, we came up with the idea of creating a project around these values. That's how created this association: "I Come From".
