Lewa House supports the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy and their wildlife conservation and local community development programs. As part of Lewa’s conservation efforts LWC have invested extensively in the local community through several innovative programs ranging from micro-credit schemes to medical clinics and schools. Through these projects as well as recruiting from the local community the conservancy has gained their support and people living in the area now view wildlife as an asset and help protect it. As local communities have come to see the benefits of wildlife, Lewa has helped initiate and promote community driven conservation programs in surrounding communities, one of these is the Il Ngwesi Group Ranch which neighbors Lewa.
