WHO ARE WE AND WHY WOULD YOU TRUST US?
YanAnga association was set up at the beginning of 2016, on the initiative of tourism industry professionals and foreign languages and literature teachers. Its founders wished to develop these activities (touristic journeys, trainings and language courses) in France, as well as in Europe and in Morocco, rethinking them through a different prism, a prism which places the Man, multilingualism, and the development of the visited countries and territories at the heart of the trip.
A GLOBAL SOLIDARITY MOVEMENT
YanAnga is an impassioned movement whose aim is to promote intercultural exchanges and international solidarity in France, Morocco, and most broadly all over Europe. To this end, our association organizes all kinds of activities (outings, trainings, language courses, etc.) which could encourage closeness between peoples, carries out local and international development projects, and works for solidarity tourism. This type of fair and eco-friendly tourism, which assumes that each man is a journey himself, contributes to durably improve the living conditions of the host populations. In order to fulfill this ambition of a more united world, our movement daily operates in synergy.
Besides all the diverse events and activities that it organizes (sessions, conferences, outings, etc.), YanAnga association imagines and proposes solidarity trips based on meeting and sharing, which directly contribute to the development of the host communities.
IN MOROCCO AND ALL OVER EUROPE
The Yan Anga host cities and villages commit to strict criteria : spirit of openness, wealth of their cultural and natural heritage, vitality of their traditions, dynamism, cohesion and development potential. Thus the chosen communities are all collectively organized to offer you an unforgettable journey, made of meetings and exchanges that enhance their cultural identities, environmentally friendly, and in favor of a sustainable local development.
A FAIR AND SOLIDARITY TOURISM & LANGUAGE COURSES
Yan Anga was directly inspired by the principles of social and solidarity economy to propose you touristic journeys based on meeting and exchanges, in Europe as well as in Morocco. Thus, for the traveler, it is not all about the pleasure of travelling, but it’s also about contributing to the development of the destinations while learning a new language.
OUR PROJECT : TO DEVELOP TOURISM IN UNITED HOST COMMUNITIES
The approach of Yan Anga association is to support some rural and urban communities to allow them to host small groups of a dozen travelers in optimum conditions. In return, they undertake to respect the lifestyle and the culture of the visited populations.
AN « ALTERNATIVE » ETHICAL AND USEFUL TOURISM
At a time of globalization, it is clear that the technical progress have made traveling easier, safer, and cheaper; traveling has been democratized and trivialized, at least in our western societies. So that nowadays, many tourists visit the same places, do the same things, and stay in the same standardized hotels, far from local specificities and realities. We could legitimately wonder about the impact of such tourism on the visited populations, their wellbeing and their economic life. That is exactly to rectify this state of affairs that Yan Anga association was created, with the constant ambition to work for an eco-friendly and solidarity tourism, based on meeting and exchanges, in villages as well as in cities. At the same time, our association proposes courses and language trainings allowing to discover the other in all his diversity. During a few days, the travelers share the daily life of the residents, who organize to make their attentive and supportive hosts discover “their” country, with its traditions, its culture, its social organization, its past and future. This way the travelers can appreciate other lifestyles, in respect and fraternity.
