As COVID-19 is drastically impacting tourism globally, seasonal workers – such as porters – will be dramatically affected. KPAP estimates that the majority of porters do not have savings to buy food and support their livelihoods for more than a few months. As there is no certainty of when life and business will return to “normal”, we are proactively looking for ways to support the porter community during this crisis.
 
We are asking our international IMEC/KPAP family, our friends and supporters, to help us during this difficult time.  Please consider making a donation to support our educational efforts. As a result of the virus and economic crises, we are redefining our educational classes to focus on:
 
  • Budgeting & money management
  • Alternative income generating activities
  • Improving farming practices
We regard this extraordinary time in life as an opportunity to empower Tanzanians in being more self-reliant with sustainable activities which will also lessen their dependency on climbing the mountain. 

During this challenging and uncertain time, we understand that not everyone may have the ability to contribute financially. Your support is also needed for ideas, expertise and insight. As a community of people who believe in helping those less fortunate than ourselves, we can transform ideas into concrete plans. With persistence and teamwork, we can assist our porters to survive the coming months.  

Please send your ideas and feedback to [email protected].

We are grateful for your time and consideration towards this. KPAP is trying our best to alleviate the issues that this outbreak has on our community of porters.
