Gender equality between male and female employees makes for better quality of service – especially in the tourism sector – but in Tunisia many women struggle to find good employment. TUI Care Foundation is supporting scholarships that enable Tunisian students to undertake internships at a hotel. This supports diversity and gives women a better chance of building a successful career in the Tunisian tourism industry.
SUPPORTING WOMEN THROUGH SCHOLARSHIPS
The project was initiated by GIZ (Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit) in Tunisia and is part of the EconoWin (Economic Integration of Women in the MENA Region) programme. GIZ works with Maghrébin Institut de Management et de Tourisme. GIZ assists the German government in international cooperation and sustainable development. EconoWin works to improve the (working) conditions and integration of women in the economy and employment in Egypt, Jordan, Morocco and Tunisia.
