The GTTP is a catalyst for change, often life-altering change, in the personal lives and professional prospects of participating students and teachers. They, in turn, benefit the travel & tourism industry as well as their communities and countries in myriad ways. These many contributions may not be quantifiable but they are the essence of what we do. The words of the participants themselves convey this broader sense of the value of the GTTP.
"I am greatly honored and privileged to associate myself with GTTP for all the opportunities it has provided me as an individual. I really do appreciate because now I am aware of most of the careers involved in Travel & Tourism. At the Monaco conference, we all learnt one thing as we go back to our respective countries that we should not restrict our minds to the boarders of our country but we should be open-minded and aware that there is a huge world outside our country." - Loreen Gachambi Mugi (Former GTTP Student)
"For me, the GTTP experience is one of my most cherished to date,” says Sam Morgan. “It had a tremendous impact on my personal and academic development." - Samuel Morgan (Former GTTP Student)
"GTTP has given me a great experience. I never thought I could emerge a winner in any of the competitions. Emerging the winner in the Digital photo competition in 2014 has made me a better person in our society. My community now knows about the GTTP program. I encourage other students to do better in the club because there are great opportunities for them." - Douglas Thomas (Former GTTP Student)
