Challenge

Tourism is a major driver of the post-apartheid economy, and many poor communities are looking to tourism to generate income and employment. However, communities often lack the skills, knowledge, networks and finance required to develop viable and sustainable tourism ventures. A local nonprofit organization, Fair Trade in Tourism South Africa (FTTSA), needs $15,000 to directly support 5 rural, community-based tourism initiatives with capacity-building and market access.

Solution

Training and capacity-building for men, women and youth living in rural and semi-rural communities where tourism has the potential to improve livelihoods.

Long-Term Impact

Job and income creation lead to more secure and sustainable livelihoods, which in turn have a positive impact on conservation of natural and cultural resources.
