The Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project (KPAP) is a Tanzanian non-profit organization devoted to ensuring that Kilimanjaro porters are treated fairly and ethically. KPAP assists porters by giving them free clothes, offering educational opportunities, and overseeing the Partner for Responsible Travel Program’s monitoring operations. They urge all companies to join the Partner Program, and they educate climbers about the significance of choosing an ethical climbing firm.
The porter treatment monitoring program at KPAP examines business payment and tipping procedures on a regular basis and collects surveys from porters. KPAP also conducts audits and gives feedback to its partners.
