Visit Ventures is an Egyptian startup.Here is how we are fighting COVID-19 on two different fronts:

The Data

First, we made a list of every infected city and region on Wikipedia and the list was large: 22,136 words 138,802 characters and it took us 4 days of work.

This list we wrote was in Arabic to serve our local community in the MENA region, people now can find information easily about COVID-19 and other people can publish information on social media and use our Wikipedia effort as a source of data.

Our Arabic website دليل السفر is providing information about safe traveling to everyone who MUST travel.

The Travel Industry

Second, We noticed that the most affected by COVID-19 were the travel industry, tour guides who used to get paid on a daily basis are no longer working, they have no insurance no salaries, nothing!

We started an initiative to empower tour guides, they have stories to tell so why not tell it and write it in an article and get paid for every piece of content they publish whether its an article or photo or even video, People will read those stories, those experiences!And we will serve ads in the bottom of every story/article, Ads from Google Adsense, or any ad network, This money goes to our heroes, we are here to empower daily workers/tour guides.Shehab Ahmed, is a blockchain entrepreneur, writer and father.I noticed that companies who made millions gave up when COVID-19 happened, they did not support the tour guides who made them rich, i decided to make a plan and help them, they lack the technical experience and our 25+ team can not teach every one of them, so we decided to make a travel content network for them where they can publish their stories and make money from home.
