Community-based Tourism Network of Ceara (Fortaleza – Brazil)

The Community-based Tourism Network of Ceara brings together 11 coastal communities and two association in Fortaleza: Mulheres em Movimento and the Frei Humberto Centre for Training, Capacity Building and Research (of the Rural Workers Landless Movement). They consider tourism as a strategy to strengthen the communities’ resistance and organisation capacity, with the aim of reinforce their autonomy while protecting their culture and territory. As a network, they speak with public bodies and private stake-holders, on behalf of the communities. They also provide training in several fields and are implementing a system to commercialise tourist services. They work in co-operation with the Solidarity Tourism Brazilian Network.

The Frei Humberto Centre offers solidarity accommodation in Fortaleza.
