Changing lives one adventure at a time.
Our travels have taken us around the world, introducing us to individuals with needs that couldn’t be ignored. We’ve had a tremendous impact on the lives of thousands, and we’re on a mission to help thousands more.
K2 Adventures Foundation works with disability communities in Tanzania, Peru and Nepal. Medical care in third world countries is scarce and practically inaccessible to individuals with little to no income. Sadly, this means a lot of disabilities are left untreated. To date, and with the support of our donors and sponsors, we have built a free-standing medical and dental clinic, repaired classrooms, and brought thousands of kilos of essential supplies.
There is still a lot more heartfelt work to be done, and we can’t wait for you to join us.
The White Hat Project
The White Hat Project will build Tanzania’s first safe haven shelter for young girls who are victims of sexual violence.This initiative is the next step in K2 Adventures Foundation’s successful Tanzanian philanthropic and community service program begun in 2009. Our decade of service will now be expanded to actively address the growing needs of an often over looked subset of Tanzania’s female population. We believe the WHP can be the beginnings of a cultural shift for victims of sexual violence in Tanzania.
Mwereni Integrated School for the Blind
We visited the Mwereni Integrated School for the Blind in 2009 and found that many of the students were suffering from lack of medical and dental care, typical hygiene and basic necessities. We’ve done some amazing work there since, and there is still much more to do.
Summit Happy Home
Although Arusha is one of the most developed cities in Tanzania, it continues to struggle with crippling levels of poverty and meager living conditions. Children are disproportionately affected, that’s why we partnered with Summit Happy Home to provide displaced and orphaned children with better opportunities.
St. Joseph’s Hospital
St. Joseph’s Hospital is quite literally a life-saver and a key institution in Moshi, Tanzania. They are wonderful and highly trusted partners of ours. If you’re interested in volunteering, we have opportunities for every level of medical expertise and interest at this this fully developed hospital.
We offer many opportunities to volunteer in the local villages. Your heartwarming adventure will include distributing much needed equipment, medicine and clothing to local schools and children. You will also experience the interaction with local children in their natural surroundings.
High-Altitude Mountain Welfare Workers Association
For the past 6 years, we’ve partnered with the (HAMWWA), who have set up a project to cover the costs of education for children who’ve lost a parent in a climbing accident. We have also helped incorporate additional programs throughout the Khumbu Valley to benefit the children with their education.
Global Programs Director
K2 Adventures Foundation currently serves 3 international communities in Nepal, Peru and Tanzania. Our international support is focused on funding special projects for children and providing volunteer opportunities in these countries. Our newest program, Summit Happy Home, located in Arusha, Tanzania will focus on the health, education and living conditions by providing a safe environment, healthy accommodations, well balanced diet and medical care for 20 orphans. As one headmaster stated, “K2 is providing our Tanzanian children with opportunities they never would have had.”
