Travel Agents Association of India and FICCI Ladies Organization
A formal Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed today by the Travel Agents Association of India (TAAI) and FICCI Ladies Organization (FLO) with the India Ministry of Tourism for women empowerment. Through this initiative, FLO and TAAI will lay emphasis on personal and hospitality skills, a more flexible work balance, and greater options for entrepreneurship with significantly lower capital.
The State Chapters of FLO and TAAI will create awareness, along with state tourism departments and state tourism corporations, to highlight the vital role the tourism industry can play as a model for sustainable livelihood for women and ensure their economic upliftment. This collaboration will help in initiating and engaging women at the grassroots level and at the middle level in semi-urban areas, urban areas, and the urban educated unemployed.
FLO and TAAI will be the facilitators in the process connecting women with relevant stakeholders, undertake training in specific verticals for enhancing their livelihood opportunities, increasing their self-awareness as equal partners in the nation’s growth, and working towards their economic empowerment.
