Women’s scholarship fundraising project, Institute of Travel and Tourism of The Gambia (ITTOG). We are currently raising funds to sponsor young women in The Gambia, to facilitate and enable them to access Further Education and training opportunities on a one year programme of study at ITTOG, an award winning institute.
Traditionally in The Gambia the men/boys in the family are prioritised for being provided with an education/career, in particular within families with limited resources who cannot afford to provide all their children with the same opportunities.
Women in poorer families need financial support to access career/training opportunities and all of the empowering life chances which this can deliver. This women’s scholarship fundraising project has been established to enable those who would not ordinarily get the chance to study tourism, to develop careers within the tourism industry and achieve a sustainable livelihood for their families.
Your contribution will directly support young people.
