The Lamu Environment Foundation has published it’s full scoping report compiling important information about the local environment and those working to save it. Hannah Evans, a resident on Lamu Island and passionate environmentalist, has spent the last few months speaking with environmental groups, potential donors and many others with strong connections to the area.
In summary, the feedback has been unanimous: this kind of organisation would be welcome and necessary to ensure the future preservation of Lamu, its species, habitats and ecosystems. An interest in promoting green jobs, building capacity within the community and developing a more sustainable model of tourism was expressed by many. The full report is available for download below and an executive summary can be found here.
As a reminder, the Lamu Environment Foundation (LaEF) will raise funds from people and businesses with a strong connection to Lamu, to support the most effective environmental projects and campaigns working to protect and restore nature, on land and at sea.
We are hosting a webinar on the 17th of June at 11am and would love for any potential donors to join us. You can RSVP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
