While you are achieve your goals , you will automatically allow Kilimanjaro porters, and un abled Tanzania local children to achieve theirs. We believe in giving back to the community from each trip we make, portion of every climb up Mount Kilimanjaro or Safari , will be saved to the Kilidestination Supporting Fund, something that already shows up positive result, as we have new cook, and waiters that are now working with us as our best camp Managers and Best Cooks. Also some other porters are still on progress. And now we are looking foward for having Guides from this Kilidestination Foundation
Tour for Education
As many other African countries, Tanzania have been in problem of many non-educated local people
because for some years back majority of the parents couldnt afford to take their children to school.
Mount Kilimanjaro have been best destination for this group, as to be a Kilimanjaro porter only needs
hardworking and to be strong not education. So many people from different parts of the country work
there as their permenent job for supporting their fanmilies and all who rely on them. Some they still
have dreams but cant make it, hence Kilidestination take this part to change their dreams to reality,
even for some percentages if not full changes they want.
We believe in Tour for Education. This means our porters and guides are all local hires. We saw how much desire these local Tanzanians wanted to work considering the average unemployment rate is above 40%. We are a Tour company that believes in working for education, and believe this is the best way to serve the community. Portion of our profit from tour operation is guaranteed going to funding this mission, and we don't accept any external donations. Let us work for you so we can send more locals to provide basic education. .
PORTERS CURRENTLY ON OUR EDUCATION PROGRAM FUND
How it Works
Each low season (the off season for Mountain climb) we select porters from our crew that have work with
us for over ten trips successfully and fithfully and send them to school of Language. Our courses starts
from three months to one year, so once a porter starts this course, we will be with him up to the end of
From here he/she is free to choose keep on with us or to find any other opportunity he/she wants. By keep staying with us there have another oportunity of their choice, either to keep on with Guiding school or Food bevarage cources and later becomes one of our Guides or Sheffs.
SOME OF THE PORTERS WHO HAVE BEEN BENEFITED FROM OUR FOUNDATION
We also have other porters who are still on progress. On the beginning of the course, they start 3
months up to Six months course, here we find out how they are going , and if they are not good enough
they can continue up to one year.
This is the continued program , in which as more time and trips we get is how we manage to take more of our porters to school and after years many of the Tanzanians will change their living standards by having more good working posts.
