Lamu Environment Foundation
Lamu archipelago is a jewel in the crown of Kenya’s coastal region. Boasting over 130km of coastline and varied ecosystems Lamu is an exciting combination of beautiful natural landscapes, diverse flora and fauna and spectacular marine ecosystems. These diverse habitats all require protection, preservation and restoration to bring about long-lasting sustainable change.
The Lamu Environment Fund (LEF) was founded in 2021 with the idea of conserving this natural beauty. To do this LEF raises funds from individuals and businesses who care passionately about Lamu, to support local organisations that focus on protecting, preserving and restoring the archipelago.
The key areas of focus include solid waste management, mangrove conservation, marine conservation, land regeneration and restoration and continuing education and providing alternative livelihoods.
