    Posted: 25 April 2005 at 10:11am

Hello! My name is Rochelle Velderrain and I am the California Area Coordinator for Nacel Open Door, a non-profit high-school foreign exchange program that seeks Host Families across the United States (www.nacelopendoor.org). I am trying to find families to host students from Indonesia, Syria & Morocco. The students will be here in September '05 and will attend a US public high school. They are on a scholarship program called YES (Youth Exchange and Study). The students are female & male, all indicating in their applications that they are practicing muslims.  I am interested in families who are interested in cultural diversity and want to make a difference in the world. Families who would enjoy taking in a high-schooler for a 10-month experience (sometimes 5 months). They come with own spending money and medical insurance. Please contact me ASAP if you are interested.

Auzubillahi minash shaitan ir Rajim,

Bimillah ir Rahman ir Rahim,

Hello there,

I dont live in your area, so wont be able to give any concrete reply. I hope those who are from your location would come forward and respond readily.

As an alternative, i would suggest you also try to get in touch with muslim families thru the local mosques. I think that is a better way of short listing people.

All the best.

Nausheen,

thank you for your help!  Do you know how I would go about finding a mosque?
