Besides that, 12 local guides were trained and employed by the company; schools, dispensaries, child-headed homes, widows of genocide, reformed perpetrators of genocides also benefited, women living HIV/AIDS also benefited from our project tours.
Through Community-based tours; women empowerment has been achieved and also encouraged innovations, creativity and entrepreneurship amongst the local community groups receiving tourists. Because of incomes generated from tourism in all community-based tourism activities, this reduced conflicts within many homes in villages where we operate.
