Volunteer

Overview

Our programs are only possible with the help of our dedicated and generous volunteers. We operate ongoing projects in four countries: Nepal, Peru, Tanzania, and the USA, and are always looking to expand our outreach to new areas. Volunteers can get involved with an on-going project, or contact us about creating a custom volunteer opportunity.

 

You will immediately see the difference you are making when you give the gift of your time.

Tanzania

The Kilimanjaro Kids Community (KKC) is HOP’s proudest achievement. This 4-acre complex houses 12 beautiful Tanzanian children, and has many ongoing construction and education projects. Volunteers have helped out with a number of projects, including building new housing and dorms, distributing school supplies to the KKC’s kids, and installing solar panels. Our guest house at the KKC allows those interested to extend their visit and stay directly on-site.

Other ongoing projects in Tanzania include Makuyuni School Lunch Program, and the Mama Na M’toto Women’s Empowerment Group.

Pair a voluntourism project with a Kilimanjaro climb, a stay on Zanzibar Island, an African Wildlife Safari, or all three!

Nepal

Nepal is the birthplace of Human Outreach Project. In 2004, Dean summited Mt. Everest along with his good friend and climbing partner Ang Pasang. A few months later, Pasang was killed tragically in an avalanche. Dean committed to doing whatever he could to support Pasang’s three children.

HOP continues to provide support and educational funds for Ang Pasang’s Children. Other ongoing projects in Nepal include supporting the Himalayan Rescue Association, trekking supplies to Namche Dental Clinic, and supporting Juving Secondary School.

Visit the Namche Dental Clinic on your way to Everest Base Camp and deliver donations such as dental supplies and small toys.

Peru

Since 2014, HOP has sponsored Pashpa’s Annual Chocolatada Festival by providing food and gifts. We have also constructed solar powered computer centers in the villages of Pashpa & Huaripampa. Volunteer groups in Peru have assisted with the construction of these computer centers by painting, installing solar panels, and training community leaders on the use of computers & cameras.

 

 

Trek through the Cordillera Blanca mountain range to Huaripampa and Pashpa and help with a HOP project in the villages.

USA

HOP has opportunities for volunteers to get involved right here at our home base in Salt Lake.   During the holiday season, the Veterans Outreach Project seeks volunteers to help deliver food and groceries to local Veterans and their families. HOP Outdoors runs summer hiking trips for underserved youth in the Salt Lake Valley, and needs volunteers who can spend an afternoon hiking with groups of students.
