Tourists’ enjoyment of Praslin Heritage Trail encourages further heritage efforts
Heritage Awards launched by Raffles and Seychelles Heritage Foundation
(eTN) - In a remarkable private-public sector cooperation, Praslin and La Digue Heritage Awards been launched at the Raffles resort on Praslin island, when the Seychelles Heritage Foundation (SHF) announced a new award scheme.
In particular, children can submit their projects and research into heritage sites, traditional dance, crafts, food, and more and will then be up for annual awards, starting in 2013. SHF’s CEO Patrick Nanty and the resort’s General Manager Simon Hirst were both at hand to make the announcement.
A year ago, the Praslin Heritage Trail was launched, and the acceptance of this concept by tourist visitors has clearly encouraged the heritage foundation to expand their scope, helped by generous support from Raffles. An exhibition set up by SHF was held alongside the event during which the announcement was made.
