The objective of the project is to influence the transformation of the tourism sector into a sector more in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (ODS) in Gambia and also internationally (in Catalonia).

The project focuses on supporting women in vulnerable situations with a training offer and job placement to lead the creation of small businesses linked to tourism with a focus on sustainability. So the project strengthens and expands the responsible and sustainable tourism sector.

In Catalonia, the project affects the tourism market, actors such as teachers, students, professionals and companies in the sector, in the design of trips based on Responsible and Touristic Tourism (TRS).
