Support Our Work/Donate

People support our work in many ways. Some volunteer their time and/or knowledge. Some promote our work. And people donate and/or facilitate a grant. Many companies participate in our program for responsible tourism.

Climber Contribution

We ask climbers to consider a minimum contribution of $3 per climber as a Climber Contribution Fee. In Tanzania we call it the KRTO contribution fee. This fee directly supports the following initiatives: Fair Wages. Proper Gear, Education and Training, Advocacy and Awareness. Read more about the climber fee.

Join us in our mission to support ethical climbing in Tanzania, Peru and Nepal. Together, we can make a difference, one step, one climber, one porter at a time. Interested in joining our team of volunteers? We can use all experience, just a few hours or more. Please contact us We are looking forward to meet you!


Make a donation to IMEC to support our work for the porters in Tanzania (Kilimanjaro), Peru and Himalaya.

Our deep gratitude goes out to all of our incredible donors. A special “Thank You” to:
