The 2023 Bahari Yetu Festival, exceeded all of our expectations. It was the second time we held this annual ocean festival and the turn out was double that of the previous year. There was sponsored attendance of over 360 kids, from 18 schools across 4 islands in the Lamu archipelago. We also provide a space for local conservation and community organisations to

showcase the work they are doing. 


Once the games on the beach were complete everyone made their way to the Sea Suq for lunch and performances. The Lamu Arts & Theatre Alliance performed an interactive play, and the Matata & Friends puppet show had everyone enthralled! The kids amazed us all with their talent show and creative recycled art pieces. Ending the day with prize giving, goody bags and a dhow sail in the channel.

Prizes given included fun activities for the kids such as a snorkelling trip, sunset sail and trip to Takwa Ruins
