Hospitality News Middle East - - NEWS -

Hav­ing received this mes­sage from the Pres­i­dent of AMFORHT (World as­so­ci­a­tion for Hospi­tal­ity and Tourism Ed­u­ca­tion and Train­ing), I think it is very im­por­tant that all those en­gaged in hospi­tal­ity ac­tiv­i­ties should take this into con­sid­er­a­tion:

"

I have a few words to all those young peo­ple who can­not go to col­lege this year. I will not make a list of the rea­sons why this sit­u­a­tion ex­ists – it is re­volt­ing – it is un­wor­thy. There­fore, I can­not keep silent.

The right to ed­u­ca­tion is a fun­da­men­tal hu­man right – I wish all AMFORHT mem­bers pro­claim very loudly that ev­ery man and woman, from all coun­tries, all cul­tures, can ben­e­fit from a univer­sal right to train­ing and ed­u­ca­tion through­out their lives.

This com­mit­ment is not ev­ery­one’s busi­ness, but should be each and ev­ery per­son’s busi­ness…

Each of us can con­trib­ute, mod­estly or fully, to spread knowl­edge to those who have no ac­cess to ed­u­ca­tion. Please con­sider this for a mo­ment, and you’ll find out how to con­trib­ute to this cause ef­fec­tively.

We all have a huge stock of records, books, knowl­edge ma­te­rial: let’s share it with those who do not have these means! More­over, couldn’t we cre­ate the “Univer­sal Li­brary of Tourism”, open and free to all? Let’s gather our academic as­sets and let’s share them.

So, for all of you (pro­fes­sors and pro­fes­sional train­ers), I wish for a year in which we can share our wis­dom with all of those who do not have the op­por­tu­nity to be a mem­ber of AMFORHT. I rely on each of you to make a dif­fer­ence." Nouhad Dam­mous Edi­tor-in-chief Doc­teur Honoris Causa

Step by step our aim is to show the ac­tiv­ity, suc­cess and sol­i­dar­ity of the hospi­tal­ity fam­ily in the Mid­dle East
