November brought the 2021 regional CafecISTOs to a close by organising an event for each of the regional sections: Africa, Europe and the Americas.
The International Social Tourism Organisation (ISTO) seeks to spread among its members and partners good practices, experiences and knowledge that promote the development of fair and sustainable tourism for all. This is why CafecISTOS provide a space for meetings and exchanges. This month, two CafecISTO days were held: on 17 November the events for CafecISTO Africa and Europe were held, and on 24 November for the Americas.
CafecISTO Africa was about promoting women’s empowerment through tourism in Africa. In the webinar were present two speakers Ewoenam Afua Afenyo-Agbe from Ghana and Jacqueline Ondo from Cameroon. The first presentation was a theoretical presentation, as Ewoenam is a lecturer at Cape Coast University. While the second presentation was practical, as Jacqueline founded the Association AFRECAM (Alliance des Femmes de la Réserve de Campo-Ma’an) and explained how it helped to empower women.
