KILIMANJARO PORTERS ASSISTANCE PROJECT
The exploitation and mistreatment of porters can be a troubling challenge in the climbing industry.
By climbing with us - a qualified KPAP Partner company - you can be assured that your porters are well taken care of. All Kilimanjaro companies are invited to participate with the Partner for Responsible Travel Program. We voluntarily cooperate with KPAP’s monitoring activities and allow KPAP to evaluate the treatment of our porters on all of our climbs.
We are proud to be an approved Partner company as this ensures we are externally monitored on each and every trek for fair treatment standards.
The Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project (KPAP) is a Tanzanian non-for-profitorganization founded in 2003. KPAP is an initiative of the International MountainExplorers Connection (IMEC), a US 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. You can find out more and donate at www.kiliporters.org.
