Charity description

International Porter Protection Group logo
“Working towards a Sustainable and Ethical Trekking Industry.”
Thankyou for visiting the International Porter Protection Group's ( IPPG) online donation page.

IPPG aims to improve safety and health for porters working in the mountains for the trekking industry worldwide. We work to raise awareness amongst trekkers and porters to the importance of altitude illness to avoid unnecessary tragic deaths in the mountains.

IPPG's aim is for every porter to have:
- Access to adequate clothing, boots, shelter and food (appropriate to the altitude and weather)
- Medical care when ill or injured
- Insurance

In addition we run a porters shelter and medical rescue post in Machermo, Nepal and have nearly completed building a similar post in Gokyo, Nepal

MyDonate will reclaim gift aid tax on your donation (if you are a UK taxpayer), meaning any donation is worth around 25% more.

Thanks again for your support
