Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project

"You and the Keen team have made a big impact here in Tanzania. I delivered the shoes today to the Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project (KPAP) here in Moshi, Tanzania, at the base of Kilimanjaro. The shoes will be put into the gear borrowing program that they have set up. Porters can come in and borrow equipment and clothing to be able to do their jobs better on the mountain and help them earn a more sustainable living. KPAP also works with local outfitters to provide better working conditions for porters including making sure they are fed and paid appropriately. I met the staff today as well as some of the porters. Really great folks working hard to make the lives of people working on the mountain better. Off to climb Kilimanjaro's Kibo mountain (the highest of it's three peaks) tomorrow!" - Christian
