The East African Wildlife Society (EAWLS) is a regional membership-based organization that seeks to enhance the conservation and wise use of the environment and natural resources in East Africa for the benefit of current and future generations.
The Society, based in Kenya, is one of the region’s oldest and most distinguished conservation CSOs. EAWLS is highly effective at influencing natural resource policy debates and public discourse in Kenya, and works on a wide range of forest, marine, and wildlife conservation and management initiatives. EAWLS is also the only regional conservation organization within East Africa, an increasingly relevant role as the East African Community moves gradually towards greater economic and political integration.
Our support to EAWLS in 2014 focused on strengthening their communications and development functions and performance. We carried out an in-depth audit of their communications and membership-management functions, assessing the organization’s communications strategies, platforms and products. We also helped the Society produce a biennial report that highlights their most significant achievements during the previous two years.
“The thing that we like about this partnership is the freedom to be allowed to give our views... When we discuss [with Maliasili] about what we need to focus on, we have the freedom to talk about our needs, and Maliasili responds by saying they will help us to fill in those needs.”-Michael Gachanja, Executive Director of the East African Wild Life Society
