Mandela Day July 18th 2014

After a very successful beginning of the vision in 2010 it was time we formalised the idea as passionate individuals in the industry with a vast network of former colleagues in Industry. By involving willing learners in schools through the Department of Economic Development and Tourism as well as Department of Education. As a sector responsible for creating many jobs, it was without a doubt very key to nurture this industry at grass roots level in order for the overall strategic plans of the province and national departments to witness positive growth in the sector.

PROJECT ENZA, in partnership with key players in the Tourism industry, hereby proudly informs you of our 1st and Inaugural staging of the annual initiative during Mandela Day called the “KNOWING AND GROWING OUR TOURISM”, scheduled to be held on 18th July.This Event targeted at “everything” Tourism benefiting our future pioneer of this wonderful industry.
