Apprenticeships & Education

One of the challenges within education is to empower the youth of Lamu to understand their heritage and cultural values, ensuring their indigenous traditional knowledge continues to evolve and be passed down through the generations, in working towards a better future.

Through the Lamu Conservation Trust opportunities will be created for the youth through education and apprenticeships. Future plans include a tourism guide training facility, local skills and dhow building apprenticeships, as well as secondary schooling and bursaries.
