They have “considered as one of the pillars of our (The Gambia) tourism development. With the presentation of this manual, we are hopeful that with the commitment of our core team, we will be able to address most, if not all our challenges of ‘back-way’ migration, rural urban drift among other challenges we face in our communities today.”

He affirmed that their success lies in their commitment to work together as a team in fulfilling the dreams and aspirations of people in the provision of skills and means of survival through responsible tourism principles.
