The Porter Assistance Project seeks to:
Provide individual porters, mountain crew, and climbing companies with a convenient and inexpensive means of equipping their crew with high quality clothing.
Offer English language, First Aid, HIV/AIDS Awareness, and Money Management classes in order to motivate and empower porters.
Educate the tourist population about acceptable standards of porter treatment.

all mountain crew and tour operators to borrow. All that is required is a small, refundable deposit.
