Summit Kili and Support COCOBA: A Philanthropic Trek to the "Roof of Africa"


Watch here!

Join Africa Program Director Tanya Rinaldi for an exclusive webinar detailing our September 17th Departure! We are climbing Kilimanjaro, the “roof of Africa” and raising funds for COCOBA. This is a special giving back trip, with 10% of proceeds going to COCOBA.

COCOBA or Community Conservation Banking, is directly helping Tanzanian Maasai women to open small, environmentally friendly businesses. Livestock is the major source of wealth for the Maasai, so leather tanning is a natural business for these women to learn. They will learn to tan the leather and to produce finished products with it, some with beadwork, for sale in both the local and tourist market.

Why Climb Kilimanjaro with MTS? We have highly qualified and trained guides, acclimatization knowledge, reliable equipment, nourishing meals, environmental awareness, ethical employment, and a 98% summiting rate.
