Tourism Recovery Programme by TUI Care Foundation – Nubian Eco Village

The Tourism Recovery Programme is a training, mentoring and financial support programme launched by the TUI Care Foundation and enpact. It was designed to help 415 travel and tourism businesses in Egypt, Mexico, Kenya, South Africa and Tunisia get through the pandemic and become resilient, sustainable tourism businesses. Over 100 colleagues from the TUI Group have contributed to the programme, either by mentoring the participating businesses or by delivering expert workshops within its training component.

Nubian Eco Village is one of 50 innovative tourism businesses in Eygpt supported through the Tourism Recovery Programme:

The construction of the Aswan High Dam in the 1960s meant that the local Nubian communities needed to move from their homeland. In a bid to help preserve the eroding Nubian customs and traditions, Nubian Eco Village was founded in the Western part of the city. The village includes a cultural centre for customary handicrafts, Nubian-style accommodation where guests can stay overnight and traditionally built Nubian houses, as well as a healing centre and health centre providing traditional sand and aromatherapy services.
