Jinja is an industrial Town, A tourist destination and a a regional commercial center. Interesting sites are many; Source of the Nile, boat cruises, Bujagali Dam is a wonder itself, it has submerged Bujagali falls but beyond it is Kalagara falls and most impressive is Itanda falls which should be baptized the new Bujagali falls. 12km of calm lake Victoria bays, Samuka island, Mpumudde Hill, Nice and Cheap hotel service. Don’t miss Nile Casino, two friend pubs.
Fatima Jinnah Educational Complex just started its programme of teaching English, computer classes and soon sewing and design classes. The centre relies at the moment on private funds of the teachers and needs ideas for sutainable funding in the future.
Selling clothes from the sewing classes seems to be a viable idea for now. Having a cyber cafe using the computers is not possible since the centre risks to be attacked by terrorists in the city because it educates women.
Any other ideas and ideas how to put selling clothes into practice are very welcome.
The tourism program would like to develop a standardized satisfaction survey that could be used to gauge customer satisfaction for the tourism packages offered. This will help make it easier to tell what things need to be improved on. This will also help us prioritize and justify specific target areas where funding may need to be directed for improvements to infrastructure.
Can you help us develop a survey that can be given to our visitors to help gather appropriate feedback?
The tourism committee plans to provide training to the local members of the community to increase their awareness about the project and help them better understand how they can meet the needs of the visitors who come to tour the local area.
Can you find examples of similar community-based training programs that help teach the importance of environmental responsibility as well as ways to promote a safe, friendly and comfortable environment for our visitors to enjoy their stay in Nepal?
Please share your ideas or resources to help us develop this training program.
The local community has agreed on the need for a conveniently located tourism information center. For this task, we are seeking assistance in defining what types of information, materials or other items should be made available at the information center to welcome incoming visitors and help orient them to our community.
UPDATE (as of 7/10/11)
A brochure was designed for this task, but the volunteer who designed it is no longer in contact with Tejanath and he is seeking help updating it. There is additional information that he would like to add. Can you help him update the brochure?
The tourism committee would like to develop a professional brochure to promote Sankhuwasabha and increase the number of visitors to the district. For this task we are asking volunteers to help us:
1. Define what information should be included in a tourism brochure.
The first tourists have now trekked through Sankhuwasabha and visited various sites around Khandbari. One of the recommendations received was for the tourism committee to work on developing specific tourism packages.
The tourism committee would very much like to view examples of tourism packages already offered throughout Nepal. As a tourist, what do you look for in a tourism package? Help us find good examples to assist us in developing our own.
