Supporting our Team in Nepal.
In total $15,000 has been sent to Nepal and spread across 50 staff members in support of paying their rent and putting food on the table. Nepal has had to manage some series lockdowns. While Kilimanjaro has remained open Nepal really hasn’t managed to keep virus at bay and with a lot of miss information and no government support this is a very challenging time. Our staff are keeping well and grateful for your support. We are hopeful we can return to run some trips in the pre-monsoon season in 2021. Fingers cross a vaccine will arrive early in the new year and we can return to the Himalaya’s. Donate here.
The Kilimanjaro Dream Team
We have sent $11,680 to our team in Arusha. Kilimanjaro’s Number 1 Guide is making sure our team are training hard and keeping a positive outlook for the year ahead. We have been able to run a number of small trips to Kilimanjaro over the past few months and start to ramp up again in December, January and February. We have over 20 trips planned to Kilimanjaro in 2021 70% of normal but we will have to build back better. If you would like to donate to team of 45 staff in Arusha you can Donate here.
