The Porter Assistance Project

About the Project

 


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.

Porter Assistance Project offices in

  • Kathmandu, Nepal
  • Moshi and Arusha, Tanzania
  • Out side of the Machame, Marangu and Rongai gates of Kilimanjaro

stockpile water and wind resistant jackets and pants, quick-drying synthetic "base" layers, gloves, socks, hats, sunglasses, and footwear. The equipment - donated by manufacturers, ski schools, and individuals - is available for all mountain crew and tour operators to borrow. All that is required is a small, refundable deposit.
