Following the outbreak of COVID-19 in 2020, our thoughts go out to all of you who have been and are still being impacted by this global pandemic.
Today, Tanzania carries the ‘Safe travel stamp’ and is welcoming all tourists, however we stand shoulder to shoulder with the world in continuing to fight this terrible virus.
The Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism has issued National Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) for the management of COVID-19 in the Tourism Business which we must all adopt for the health, safety and security of employees and tourists in our country. AWOTTA appreciates the efforts taken by our government during these challenging times and thanks them and other organisations around the world for their continued support in protecting Tanzania’s invaluable tourism assets, so aiding the survival of hundreds and thousands of women and their communities who rely on this sector for their livelihoods.
AWOTTA will continue to monitor and adjust to the consequences of the changing world we find ourselves in, representing the voices of women in tourism whose work makes a major contribution to the identity, unity, sustainability, growth, and prosperity of our beloved country, Tanzania.
We ask members to join us in sharing ideas, thoughts, and information in these unprecedented times and thank you all for supporting each other via our whatsapp group.
