Kilimanjaro Guide Scholarship Foundation Inc. (KGSF) is a public charity devoted to providing scholarships to deserving Mt. Kilimanjaro guides, assistant guides, and porters currently working in Tanzania.
KGSF was created by three founders who climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in August 2007 over seven days on the Machame route. The climbing company supporting the climb utilized three groups of employees: guides, cooks, and porters. During the seven days, it became very obvious that all of these employees endured an extremely arduous and dangerous profession.
