The Lewa Education Programme’s main aim is to provide the children on the boundaries of the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy with access to the best possible education opportunities and effectively create awareness on the importance of wildlife conservation. Support is given through the development and improvement of infrastructure, the provision and training of teachers, and the facilitation of feeding programmes. The programme also provides bursaries and scholarships for young, high-performing students in secondary and tertiary levels of education.
