The MKPS is now offering free English classes to all porters. There are two sessions every day to meet the needs of people of different ages, skills, experience, and education level. All who successfully complete the class get a certificate. Further MKPS is sponsoring porter's medical bills and further education. Intensive training courses are offered during the rainy seasons of each year, including classes on mountain safety and basic first aid. In 2009, we have started to offer advanced classes in first aid and sustainable development.
