Airbnb Africa Academy: Empowering emerging African entrepreneurs

As part of Airbnb’s support for a new generation of entrepreneurs, Airbnb has created the Airbnb Africa Academy, an initiative to encourage healthy tourism and entrepreneurship  in rural and under-resourced communities across the continent.  By working with community-based and grassroots organisations, the Academy provides local hosts and co-hosts information and tools that they can use to create listings on Airbnb’s platform or creating a unique experience to further expand the role of local, healthy and inclusive opportunities in African tourism. The Airbnb Africa Academy is part of Airbnb’s $1 million commitment to boost community-led tourism in Africa, and is supported by the World Bank Group.
