Kapua – fundraising for sexual rights

Kapua raises funds to people in developing countries by climbing mountains. Kapua has given over 300 Finnish people the opportunity to participate in international development cooperation. Kapua volunteers are ordinary people with the desire to help and challenge their own boundaries. All candidates go through an application process. A group of 20 people raises funds for a chosen cause. The group travels to the destination country and has an opportunity to see how the funds are spent. During the trip, they challenge themselves by climbing a mountain. For the participants, Kapua is an unforgettable experience, a “Once in a Lifetime” trip. For non-profit organizations, Kapua is an effective fundraising tool and a channel to highlight the important development work done in the target countries. The main beneficiaries are, however, the people in developing countries.


Twelft Kapua project in 2020 in Nepal raises funds to support health and education in Nepal. Funds are raised in close cooperation with ODW (Taksvärkki ry) and Threshold Association. The Kapua 2020 Nepal team aims to raise a total of 100,000 euros. In 2021 the group will travel to Nepal, where they see in practice how the funds are used. The group will trek to the Gokyo Ri mountain (5,420 m). Check out the volunteers in the Kapua 2020 Nepal group and donate!
