Get Involved

Everything HOP does relies on support from generous donors and sponsors like you. Sponsorship takes many forms, and is the perfect opportunity for supporters to deepen their commitment to our mission, enriching and uplifting the communities that surround unforgettable adventures. 

 

Opportunites to sponsor can look like any of the following.

Sponsor a child at the KKC

With our Kilimanjaro Kids Community growing, we are looking for sponsors to support incoming new children adopted into our family. We currently have 15 children, and look forward to expanding the family! Sponsors can make a set annual donation, all of which goes directly toward paying for clothing, food, books, building maintenance, KKC staff salaries, and basic necessities for a child at the KKC. 

  • $1500 per child, per year covers all necessities at the orphanage 
  • For fun: $1000 per child covers a new bike and shipping from the USA. The kids are growing so fast, and love riding around the property!

Sponsor Education in Nepal, Peru, and Tanzania

With a set annual donation, contributions allow continued support toward:

 

Khari Khola & Juving secondary schools in the Khumbu Valley, Nepal: Sponsors help maintain the solar power we’ve installed, the computer centers the students use, continuous clean drinking water, student tuition, teacher salaries, and various basic supplies to uphold a fulfilling education. 

  • $1000 covers yearly tuition for 150 students to attend Juving secondary school
  • $1500 covers yearly salary for 1 experienced teacher in Juving – we support 4 teachers total
  • $1200 covers necessary updates to the computer centers in Khari Khola and Juving
  • $2500 covers battery updates, panel replacements, and additional solar installation for power the villages heavily rely on


Computer centers in Pashpa & Huaripampa villages in Peru: Donations go towards maintaining each center’s exterior building, as well as the various computers, and educational tools these communities utilize to sharpen skills for future professional trades. Financial support will also help HOP update school restrooms and wash basins. 

  • $1500 covers computer center maintenance and educational supplies
  • $2000 covers school restroom and wash basin updates

 
Four of the children at the Kilimanjaro Kids Community in Tanzania have passed the national exam to enter into secondary school! When the orphanage started, HOP utilized a lot of resources for quality tutors to help our previously homeless children get up to speed with their peers on education. It’s paid off, and their futures are bright! 

  • $1000 supports one child’s primary school education 
  • $1200 supports one child’s secondary school education 

Sponsor Food for School Children in Tanzania

The Makuyuni Primary School Lunch Program continues to enable children to attend school, by accommodating basic hunger. It’s been a privilege watching more and more students become engaged with education throughout the years we’ve been operating the program. 

  • $30,000 per year goes towards feeding thousands of children while at school, improving their overall health and education

Sponsor Holiday Cheer for Families in Peru and Utah

The Chocolatada Festivals we sponsor in two remote villages in Peru bring immense joy to the local communities that were previously unable to afford traditional Peruvian Christmas festivities. Donations provide traditional panettone bread and Chocolatada drink, as well as gifts of warm clothing and toys for the children of both villages.  

  • $2000 covers supplies for both villages to celebrate ($1000 per village)

 
With our Veterans Outreach Project, the food and gift cards we’re able to provide to veterans and their families throughout Utah, during Thanksgiving and Christmas, are appreciated beyond words. To offer holiday cheer to heroes in need is an honor, and everyone involved is grateful for your support. We give staple foods for both Thanksgiving and Christmas, as well as general groceries that can help sustain the family for months. A giftcard for holiday shopping is included in the Thanksgiving delivery. 

  • $500 per family, per holiday 


Our Kids Christmas program in Utah allows struggling parents to provide their children with a special holiday season (and teachers to stop pulling from their hard earned money to offer heartfelt support).  

  • $200 per child 

Sponsor Small Businesses in Tanzania

The Mama Na M’toto Women’s Empowerment Group is in extra need of support after months of no tourism, which the bulk of their business relied on. Their efforts are to fund their children’s education, so the investment is substantial.   

  • $600 will help with building a website, plus signage for the storefront

 
Bima’s Rice & Beans business has become absolutely essential in these times of need, when food has become scarce in Tanzania due to the pandemic. Every bit of support is crucially meaningful. 

  • $500 will help with packaging supplies, but otherwise HOP’s start-up contributions have successfully catapulted Bima’s business to sustainability!

Sponsor Nepalese Dental and Medical Clinics

Annapurna Medical Clinic in Manang, NepalThe only medical center in the upper regions of the popular Annapurna circuit trek, and instrumental in providing medical services and rescue assistance to local people, trekkers, mountaineers, support staff, and porters. Construction of the medical clinic is still on-going, but with phase III done, we’re moving on to the final finishing touches. 

  • $10,000 covers importation of necessary supplies

 
Pheriche Medical Clinic in Khumbu Valley, Nepal The only medical center in upper Khumbu Valley, and the closest by far to Everest. Renovations started in 2021 after being halted by the pandemic. 

  • $15,000 covers phase 1
  • $15,000 covers phase 2 


Namche Dental Clinic The only dental clinic in the Khumbu Valley.

  • $5000 will help upgrade x-rays at the clinic (includes shipping from the USA and the various transportation methods needed to get to Namche)

Sponsor a Custom Project

If you have something specific in mind, we are all ears! We have worked with a wide range of groups in the past, including college groups helping with construction in remote villages, and families who took on the mission of providing educational materials to schools deep in the mountains. Sponsoring a custom project means supporting it from start to finish, and providing insight, guidance, and hands-on help seeing it through.

Voluntourism

Human Outreach Project wouldn’t exist without our sister company, World Wide Trekking. Every HOP project is in some way connected to a WWTrek trip, and involves giving back to the communities that support our adventures.

Most of WWTrek’s trips contain a component of giving back and supporting local communities. Often, they include brief stops at HOP projects, and can be customized to involve more in-depth humanitarian work.

Tanzania Voluntourism Adventures

Such adventures take guests through all of our projects in Tanzania, with visits to the Kilimanjaro Kids Community, Makuyuni School, and the Mama na M’toto Women’s Empowerment Group. Trips range from 3 to 9 days, and involve custom service projects at each location. With the Kilimanjaro Kids Community Guest House completed, we’ve enjoyed hosting numerous student & volunteer groups.

Nepal Voluntourism

Plan a stand-alone voluntourism trip or add a project onto a WWTrek adventure. Trek to Everest Base Camp and stop at the Namche Dental Clinic on your way to resupply the clinic, which is the only dental clinic in the Khumbu Valley. Or you can make a detour to a secondary school in the small villages of Juving or Khari Khola to install a solar-powered computer center, a PA system, or an industrial water filter. The village visits offer a truly unique experience, as they’re both remote Sherpa communities (and at a lower altitude than the trek to base camp!).

Santa Cruz Voluntourism Trek in Peru

This trek follows the beautiful Santa Cruz trekking route, one of the most popular routes in Peru. Along the way, guests spend time in the villages of Pashpa and Huaripampa, completing projects at HOP’s newly constructed computer centers.
