Talent Development Program in Baseco

Smokey Tours conducts slum tours in BASECO. Since BASECO is being used as the „tourist attraction“ for people who do the slum tours, it is a wish for Smokey Tours to give something back to the BASECO community. Ideally in a way that many BASECO residents perceive the presence of Smokey Tours as beneficial.   

A Talent Development Program will be open and accessible to all BASECO residents. The Talent Development Program will provide more continuity than a one-time project intervention.
