The team of women-only Zaree program have recently concluded the peak tourism season by training workshop for the future and showcasing their talents and services to the regional market at the Arabian Travel Market 2013. Zaree, an income generating tourism program designed and driven by Omran, sells tour packages exclusively to female tourists visiting Wilayat Khasab who wish to experience the sights and feel of the local culture.
To ensure the sustainability of the program, Omran partnered with Sharakah, a company to support the development of Small and Medium Enterprises in the Sultanate, conducted a workshop for the Zaree team on ‘Dynamic Entrepreneurship’. The workshop included outlining a five year business continuity strategy and plan for the program.
The Zaree team also had the opportunity to showcase their innovative program and services at the Arabian Travel Market 2013. The ladies also acted as representatives of the Sultanate as they introduced visitors to the various tourist attractions and destinations in the Governorate of Musandam.
By working closely with local tour operators, Zaree has become a staple activity in female tourists’ schedules while visiting Khasab through international cruises. To date, Zaree has provided more than 700 visitors from across the globe with rare insights into the lives and culture of Omani women.
