Camp Africa is an innovative project dedicated to fostering sustainable development activities by using responsible tourism principles in The Gambia. The platform implements this through bringing together local, regional and international students and academics to learn through integration, inclusion and cross-cultural dialogue.
Camp Africa, which is a trans-national project has three main objectives – bringing students and academics together to participate in both enjoyable and meaningful activities in The Gambia, promote responsible tourism and to provide ongoing support to cultural initiatives such as educational and development projects. It aims to promote Gambia’s diverse cultural and natural heritage and develop a more positive image for the region.
Minister Fatou Mass Jobe, used the opportunity to sell the destination Gambia to the diverse stakeholders, encouraging the participants to explore the beautiful products and services the country has to offer in tourism.
