We actively engage with local porters, their communities, expedition companies, and other stakeholders to raise awareness about the rights and fair treatment of porters. Through workshops, training programs, and educational campaigns, we ensure that both porters and climbing companies are well-informed about labor rights, fair payment practices, health and safety protocols, and ethical conduct.
Tanzania Porters conducts regular monitoring and evaluation to assess the working conditions and treatment of porters on Mt. Kilimanjaro and Mt. Meru. By collaborating with climbing agencies, park authorities, and governmental bodies, we aim to enforce regulations, improve standards, and hold accountable those who do not adhere to ethical guidelines.
We believe in empowering the porters by equipping them with valuable skills, training, and opportunities for personal and professional growth. Through partnerships with vocational institutions, we offer educational programs, business management training, and workshops on eco-tourism practices to enable porters to explore diverse career avenues and improve their overall well-being.
Tanzania Porters actively engages in several projects aimed at reducing the processes of deforestation, land degradation, and pollution in the areas surrounding Mt. Kilimanjaro and Mt. Meru.They recognize the importance of maintaining the ecological balance and preserving the natural beauty of these iconic mountains for future generations.
