Local Employment – Women

On Chumbe Island we promote equal opportunities to all staff, whether they are cooks, waiters, house-keepers, maintenance staff or other.

The preference of local employment helps local communities to experience tangible benefits of Chumbe's eco-tourism and conservation endeavors, and therefore fosters a positive relationship with our neighbors and their families.

As many of our employees come from the rural fishing communities along the coast of Zanzibar, most have little formal education. Chumbe has therefore made it a priority to provide training in all these positions from Chumbe management and numerous volunteers over the years.
