Tourism Recovery Programme

The Tourism Recovery Programme is a training, mentoring and financial support programme launched by enpact and the TUI Care Foundation and designed for travel & tourism entrepreneurs in Egypt, Mexico, Kenya and South Africa to adapt to build resilient, sustainable tourism businesses and take steps towards recovering from the pandemic.

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 a 315 small and medium enterprises operating in the tourism value chain in Egypt, Mexico, Kenya and South Africa. This programme has been launched in August 2021 and will last until February 2022.

The Programme is currently expanding into Tunisia, where up to 100 additional businesses will receive support. Stay tuned for announcements of the selected businesses in December 2021!
