The Travel Corporation and TreadRight has donated USD 20,000 to the collaborative efforts between the Nepal tourism industry, the Tourism Cares community and Travel Weekly.
The joint effort will provide financial investments to support the local tourism industry, including community-based tourism projects and social enterprises, so that Nepal tourism can recover in the long term.
Additionally, the joint effort will provide global tourism advocacy and communications for Nepal, working with media and association partners to systematically tell the emerging Nepal story of recovery to travel agents, tour operators, the general public, and others vital for driving tourism to Nepal.
All funds contributed will be restricted for Nepal recovery, supporting direct program costs and including financial grants, advocacy, program management, etc.
To learn more, please visit Tourism Cares.
In addition, because we appreciate that once the initial relief efforts are over, the rebuilding efforts begin, we have earmarked a further US$30,000. Current plans include the rebuilding of schools, in collaboration with Happyheartsfund.org.
