Helping women everywhere to reach their peak
Alison with 3 women

The Climb High Foundation is dedicated to teaching women in developing nations the skills that will enable them to benefit from climbing and trekking-related tourism. We focus our work in geographic areas where women have subordinate social status and as a result have little or no access to education, healthcare or jobs.

Our programs enable these women to work as trekking guides and porters in their local mountains and national parks so that they can maintain an adequate, sustainable living wage and can make meaningful, long-term improvements to their quality of life. Our goal is not only to help them achieve financial independence, but also to provide a catalyst for social change in their communities.

Our team traveled to western Uganda to recruit and train jobless women to work as porters in the Rwenzori Mountains. In addition to earning their first paychecks, they also earned the respect of the men who shared the trails with them.
