Africa Institute of Tourism and Field Guiding believes in inclusive development and management of natural resources. The communities along the tourism value chain need to be involved in the tourism industry and they already provide support to the industry for example through the protection of nature. The project development and implementation areas of the institute will support communities by giving them practical training in the writing project proposal and running projects. It will also develop project proposals and source funding for community projects. The institute will take advantage of its pool of consultants and management structure to develop projects and support communities.
