The Tourism Recovery Programme is providing a mix of financial support, online training and one-to-one mentoring to 415 tourism businesses in holiday destinations around the world.
The tourism industry has faced an unprecedented challenge with the outbreak of the pandemic. In destinations around the world travel restrictions have endangered the livelihoods of millions of people who are working either directly or indirectly in the tourism sector.
With this in mind, the Empowering Entrepreneurship Initiative was initiated by enpact e.V. and was created to provide direct support for entrepreneurs in emerging markets.
The Tourism Recovery Programme is the third programme of the initiative and is supporting 415 small and medium enterprises operating in the tourism value chain in Egypt, Mexico, Kenya, South Africa and Tunisia. This programme has been launched in August 2021 and will last until June 2022.
