1) Objective 

Lamu Environment Foundation (LEF) was established in 2021 and raises funds from individuals and businesses to support grassroots environmental and conservation projects across Lamu County, Kenya. They support projects that protect, preserve and restore the rich environment of Lamu. Applications must focus within LEF’s thematic areas; Continuing Education and Sustainable Livelihoods, Solid Waste Management, Mangrove Conservation, Land Regeneration and Restoration and Marine Conservation. All projects must be evidence and science backed to ensure best practices are followed. If necessary, experts and training must be consulted to support the successful outcomes of the project.

All applications must demonstrate strong participation and contribution from community stakeholders to ensure projects are focused on building community capacity and interest in environmental conservation. And that throughout the project duration, communities are kept informed and up to date on project progress. All applications must demonstrate they are beneficial and appropriate for community use and needs by illustrating they’re inclusive of the interests, rights, roles and responsibilities of all stakeholders, right-holders, and other under-represented groups.

2) Eligibility

Local non-profit organizations, CBOs and social cooperative enterprises are eligible to apply for funding.

3) Location
