Women In Tourism Entrepreneurship Programme by Nedbank and South African Tourism

In January 2022, our exco members Chantell McBain-Charles from Chalan Africa Tours & Travel (Reload) and Fayrouz Holliday from Halaal Hopper Travel & Taste Experiences to participate in the Women In Tourism Entrepreneurship Programme by Nedbank, South African Tourism and McGeralds Entrepreneurship Centre .

The Women in Tourism Entrepreneurship Training Programme is an inspiring entrepreneurship development initiative designed to create a knowledge foundation, provide mentorship, and eventually, open markets to black-women-owned small, medium and microenterprises operating in the tourism sector.

After a nationwide search, twenty-five women in each province – 225 in total – out of over 400 applicants have been selected to participate in the Women in Tourism Entrepreneurship Programme.

It was so amazing to witness so many women in tourism, including WITWC members, experience this incredible initiative of training and development.
