Tourism, a pathway to self-employment

Tuesday, February 20, 2018

Tourism sector is one of the best pathways to self-employment and Gambia women are doing well in the sector, putting the little open opportunity available to them to the fullest.

Gambian women are not left behind in the employment crusade as the government always encourages them while many non-governmental organisations also maintain their call for equal employment opportunity for women.

Many women want to be part of the workforce to serve their nation just like their men counterparts in spite of resistance from their husbands or partners. But one of the industries where such resistance cannot surface is the tourism industry, a pathway to self-employment where more women make a living in as much as they are hard working.
