CANADIAN INSTITUTE OF TOURISM AND SUSTAINABLE LIVELIHOODS (CITSL)
The Canadian Institute of Tourism and Sustainable Livelihoods (CITSL) responds to the devastating conditions of the world’s poorest and most marginalized people in developing countries in an effort to build and sustain livelihoods, while creating the healthy environment necessary to their survival. We accomplish this task through various sectors- from agriculture to entrepreneurship to healthcare. Currently operating in regions throughout Africa, as well as locally in the province of Alberta, we are looking for assistance in supporting this endeavor for the betterment of society at large.
We focus our mission around working for and with the poor as well as communities that are marginalized. We aim at providing a healthy environment to build sustainable livelihoods through:
·Focusing on capacity building with the help of Community and local NGOs.
·Training for development of business skills relating to tourism entrepreneurship for various overlooked groups.
·Helping to boost the market relationship between the tourism sector and small holder farmers.
·Providing training on modern farming methods to small holder farmers.
·Promote awareness of gender equality, environmental health and well-being.
·Engage disparaged communities in various activities that help to facilitate income generation.
