Africa Sustainable Tourism Care Foundation, Uganda
Africa Sustainable Tourism Care Foundation understands the positive impact sustainable tourism can have in local communities and aims to use the economic clout of tourism to protect human rights and the environment. We believe travel should contribute to a more peaceful world fostering a deeper sense of empathy; widening understanding of global issues; and directly contribute to the livelihoods of the host communities. We seek to give a voice to communities where tourism takes place, sharing their concerns and recommendations in order to encourage more equitable and sustainable tourism.
Through our work, governments, companies, NGOs and local communities can unite and use tourism to achieve the right balance between economic development, green growth, and protection of their natural and cultural assets.
