Ethical Gambia is online!

A couple of weeks ago the website EthicalGambia.com was launched (website only in Norwegian for the moment), at Nomaden, a book shop in Oslo, Norway.

Our (Ethical Travel Portal) portfolio of responsible holidays to The Gambia has grown and we felt it was only fair to give The Gambia trips their own website. Ethical Gambia is all about experiencing the local culture, interacting with the people and support for the local communities by being a responsible tourist. So, 31st May, the day had finally arrived for our launch party. It was a wonderful evening with an engaged audience who were really interested. Ethical Travel Portal talked about EthicalGambia.com and responsible holidays.

We invited Vigdis Jordal from Heartlift who travelled with us on her first trip to The Gambia. It has been many trips for Vigdis after that. She has set up her own social responsible product, the Heartlift-bag: "When you buy this bag we give a school bag, with vital content, to an African child. Heartlift creates life-giving work for African women and it also helps to reduce the use of plastic bags. Heartlift is a socially responsible product. Enjoy knowing that your investment is helping to reduce poverty. We’re passionate about using the purchasing power of individuals to do something for others!"
(from Heartlift website)

David White from Footsteps Eco – Lodge was also invited to talk about An Ethical Holiday at Footsteps. We learned about his initiative building an eco-lodge from scratch together with people from the local village Gunjur, local excursions that are being arranged from Footsteps. See also our previous blog were we wrote about their initiative at the local school in Gunjur, their nearby village. A true sustainabe lodge!
