Maison de l’Ecotourisme de Moheli and this website have
been developed thanks to a grant from the 8th European Fund
for Development through the Programme Pluriannuel des Micro
Réalisations, le PPMR.
The project was initiated
by the communities themselves. They first built bungalows
in Ouallah 2 and Itsamia in order to receive tourists. Thereafter,
the European Union decided to help build a community tourism
network in order to better promote the island and financed
the construction of the Maison de l’ecotourisme de Moheli
and of new bungalows in Miringoni and Ouallah 2.
The main goal of the
project is to create a model of community tourism on Moheli,
in order to alleviate poverty and promote environmental conservation,
while offering the visitor the experience he wants.
