Tourism Resources Development

We are currently developing The Responsible Tourism Alliance, a social enterprise driven online search and booking platform, designed to provide a support network for disenfranchised entrepreneurs hoping to gain access to the market and develop their local economies by using tourism as a catalyst.

We provide our entrepreneurs with the assistance of volunteers who can assist in; copywriting, photography, video or graphic design skills and are also able to share their expertise in the development of non-tourism reliant second revenue streams. VWB Volunteers working on this project are eligible for subsidies from the RTA, funded by fees from memberships.

We also offer skills-development workshops to our Business Partners. These include: 

  • Managing Enquiries & Bookings via the RTA Local Agent.
  • Basic Business Management - (establishing revenue & expenditure projections.)
  • Business Operations Manual - Standard procedures for running your business (all staff roles and reports.)
  • Basic Financial & Operational Reporting (an RTA format designed to position the business for impact funding or crowdfunding support going forward.)
  • Local Business Regulations & Taxation.
  • Managing your business profile on the RTA database and marketing your business effectively on the site. 
  • Basic Hospitality Training.
  • RTA Best Practices (waste management, hygiene, safety, conservation and more) 
  • Cross-Cultural Challenges
  • English language learning for tourism.
  • 2nd Revenue Stream Generation (non-tourism reliant.)
