Itanagar: The Tourism and Hospitality Skill Council (THSC) and its training partner REACHA (Research and Extension Association for Conservation Horticulture and Agro-forestry) have jointly launched the Home Stay Host Training Programme in Arunachal Pradesh. This program is designed to empower 160 young individuals from the region and promote skill development and economic growth.
The launch event took place at Indira Gandhi College in Tezu, Arunachal Pradesh, and it signifies a significant step towards promoting skill development and economic prosperity in the region. Rajan Bahadur, the CEO of the Tourism & Hospitality Skill Council, expressed his excitement about the program, highlighting that it not only enhances the employability of the youth in Arunachal Pradesh but also contributes to sustainable tourism in the area.
This Home Stay Host Training Programme is the result of a collaborative effort involving various organizations, including India Infoline Finance Limited (IIFL) Foundation, the National Cadet Corps (NCC) under the Ministry of Defence, Lohitpur Brigade, and Dao Division. Their shared goal is to improve the lives of underprivileged youth in the region and boost tourism while doing so.
Nikhil Pant, the Chief Executive Officer at REACHA, explained that the program aims to equip young individuals with the skills needed to become ambassadors for Arunachal Pradesh, providing tourists with authentic hospitality experiences that showcase the rich culture of the region.
The initiative seeks to provide participants with essential hospitality skills, which will enable them to offer warm and authentic hospitality to tourists. This, in turn, is expected to attract more tourists to the region, thereby stimulating the local economy and creating new employment and entrepreneurial opportunities.
Through this partnership, THSC, REACHA, IIFL Foundation, NCC, Lohitpur Brigade, and Dao Division are demonstrating their commitment to fostering social and economic development in Arunachal Pradesh. This initiative not only strengthens the tourism sector but also empowers the region's youth to build sustainable livelihoods.
