Project Kilimanjaro is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that works to promote the health and wellness of women and children internationally. Using an approach consistent with preventative medicine, we work with Maasai communities in Tanzania by engaging in both educational and medical outreach with heavy emphasis on sustainable community development through global cooperation and cultural understanding. Based out of San Francisco, CA, we work closely with Tanzanian grassroots organizations and corporations to improve local industry and healthcare accessibility. Through our research into women's health and pilot programming, we are developing a structured methodology of ethical program intervention that uses a co-design and iterative process with community members to target specific healthcare disparities that women in each community face. Giving full ownership of health-tech development to women in the community, we supplant technology with culturally-sensitive educational courses to increase efficacy of the intervention and teach community workers evaluation and monitoring methods to continue to increase program impact. Our projects include Clean Water, Infectious Disease Prevention, Menstrual Health Management, and WASH - all heavily interconnected with the goal of improving living standards of women and decreasing mortality rates for preventable diseases.
A medical volunteer trip exposed to our organization the need for accessible healthcare to farther reaches of Eastern Africa; specifically the Maasai Villages at the base of Mount Kilimanjaro. The villages’ distance from health aid options has magnified the impact of treatable injuries and illness on women and children within them due to lack of imperative access and inability to make the journey when their physical abilities do not allow. A shortage of resources and knowledge of these medical impositions, the local care options do not possess what is necessary to properly prevent and treat these implicating childhood medical issues. By investing in women and children from underserved communities, Project Kilimanjaro was created to maintain strong cultural values of indigenous communities while increasing accessibility to healthcare services.
Through educational outreach, clinical development, and resource implementation, project kilimanjaro hopes to improve healthcare accessibility in overlooked communities around the world.
Our projects focus on sustainable community development that is based upon global cooperation and cultural understanding.
