Our Story

COMRED is a Kenyan founded non-government organization working with over 60 villages along the Kenyan coast.  Our mission is to build resilient coastal communities and environments in the western Indian ocean (WIO) region supporting livelihood and conservation. 

We have collaborated with Munje beach management (BMU) unit located in Msambweni, kwale county to establish a 40ha community led octopus closure. This initiative serves as a breeding ground to help replenish the declining fish stock and allow the ecosystem to regenerate.

A team of 15 marine wildlife rangers volunteered to be conducting patrol day and night to make sure the protected area is not disturbed. The patrol team also conduct regular beach cleanup, awareness sessions to help the community understand the role of the protected area and conduct ecological monitoring exercise to track the recovery of the protected area. 

The fund we raise in the challenge will be used to train the rangers on search and rescue, equip the team with the necessary equipment for their day-to-day activity and rescue operations, and build a watchtower to aid the surveillance and work as a storage facility for their equipment. 

Give today and the Scheinberg Relief Fund will match every dollar donated, amplify your impact.  Join us in speaking up
