Airbnb, the world's leading community-driven hospitality company, today announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Princess Diya Kumari Foundation (PDKF).
Through the partnership, Airbnb and the PDKF will work together to help the members of PDKF become Airbnb hosts by sharing their homes or their passions with travelers from around the world, thereby creating economic empowerment opportunities for women in rural parts of Rajasthan that don't typically benefit from such opportunities.
PDKF and Airbnb will also partner to create social impact experiences to promote local culture and unique handicrafts made by local women in Rajasthan.
The announcement highlights Airbnb's ongoing efforts to boost tourism across India and empower underserved communities through tourism.
The partnership builds on Airbnb's existing efforts in India to promote healthy tourism and provide economic empowerment opportunities to communities in rural areas, including with the Self-Employed Women's Association of India and North East Tourism Development Council.
