HUMAN OUTREACH PROJECT IN TANZANIA

One of World Wide Trekking’s founding principles is giving back to the places we travel. Through our sister non-profit, Human Outreach Project, we are making a difference in lives around the globe, and connecting trekkers with voluntourism opportunities in local communities. We have a number of diverse projects in Tanzania that WWTrek guests can get involved with.

The Kilimanjaro Kids Community is HOP’s proudest achievement. This 4-acre orphanage sits in the shadow of Kilimanjaro and currently houses 12 Tanzanian children and 4 full-time staff. HOP has also been working at the Makuyuni Primary School to provide daily school lunches for the school’s 850 children, supporting the Mama Na M’toto women’s empowerment group in the village of Mto wa Mbu, as well as providing start-up funding to one of our long-time porters for his business, Bima’s Rice and Beans.
