Wondering what to gift that special person who has everything? If you’d like to show how much you care about them AND about helping make the world a better place, please consider donating to The Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project (KPAP).


As a grass roots organization, KPAP relies heavily on the support and generosity of donors like you from all over the world. These donations ensure the hard-working Kilimanjaro mountain crews are treated ethically and fairly.

Your gift will help KPAP continue to impact Porter’s lives by improving their working conditions through:

  • Lending donated clothing at no charge to the mountain crew;
  • Offering Educational Classes to the Porters;
  • Providing industry guidelines for proper Porter treatment;
  • Educating the public on Porter working conditions and climbing responsibly.

If you’ve been lucky enough to experience the magic that is Mount Kilimanjaro, you’ll know that Porters are the backbone of the trek. They carry your food and equipment, set up your camps, dance, sing and keep you motivated and safe on the mountain.

As we near the end of 2018 we’d be so grateful if you would consider donating to the Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project. There’s no doubt your donation will make a difference.
