About GTHI

Gambia Tourism and Hospitality Institute (GTHI), was first established as The Gambia Hotel School (GHS) with support from the German Agency for Technical Cooperation (GTZ) and the World Bank, between 1979 and 1981. It opened in 1981 to offer training for new entrants to the industry in four disciplines: Bar & Restaurant Service, Housekeeping & Laundry, Front Office & Reception and Cookery & Pastry.

In 2009 the Hotel School started a new stage in its development through a great investment in Buildings, Equipment and Technical Assistance at the highest level of the world industry. The institute is organized in two faculties, one focused on Hospitality related areas, Gambia Hotel School, and the other is centred on the activities related to Tourism named Gambia School of Tourism.

This effort was made with the help of the Spanish Agency of Cooperation and Development and the World Bank under the strategic impulse of the Ministry of Tourism and Culture of The Gambia.
