Tourism for Help
We work within the swiss international cooperation network, particularly through our membership in the Fédération Génevoise de Coopération, and at the moment we work on two projects in Africa (one in Senegal and one in Mali). We also worked for 8 years on a project in Cambodia.
Our concept is basically to create Training Centers for young people willing to find a job in the local tourism-hotel industry, but unable to sustain the cost of such training, because in developing countries (like Senegal, Mali and Cambodia) there is no public option for professional training.
All our training centers have a little hotel-restaurant, open to all, where the customers can contribute to the project not only financially (by buying meals and services), but also by interacting with the students that take care of the service, under their teacher’s supervision.
