Computers & Conservation
Computers & Conservation

Lewa employs a community-centric approach to protect species like rhinos, elephants, lions, cheetahs, giraffes, and zebras and works closely with neighbouring communities to ensure that people also benefit from conservation. By teaching and mentoring youth from agricultural areas, Lewa offers livelihood opportunities that are less reliant on the finite natural resources that people and wildlife in northern Kenya depend on. Equipped with valuable computer skills, students are helping to increase crop production while protecting the ecosystem and have programmed drones to plant tree seedlings and created an automated crop irrigation device.
