KWT recognises that it is imperative to the protection of Kenya’s wildlife that more Kenyans are given the opportunity to attain a good wildlife or conservation based education.

Justice Ole Keiwua Scholarship Programme

Dedicated to the late Justice Moijo Ole Keiwua, Trustee, and founding member of the Kenya Wildlife Trust, the Justice Ole Keiwua Scholarship Fund was established to invest in developing conservation leaders (from the key wildlife areas where KWT works; Amboseli/Tsavo, Samburu/ Laikipia and the Greater Maasai Mara).

This scholarship recognises, encourages and promotes leadership among future wildlife management professionals through supporting their wildlife and conservation-based education.

Scholars' Testimonials

Agnes Parmeres

"As a recipient of KWT’s Justice Ole Keiwua scholarship, I am able to expand my knowledge on wildlife and conflicts arising while finding out the various mitigation measures employed to resolve the problem. Furthermore, as a woman in wildlife I am becoming a source of inspiration to the younger generation as I act as a role model to my community. Wildlife conservation should be practiced as the future of wildlife is in our hands. I hope more men and women from Amboseli will take up the role of being conservationists."

Pascal Esekon

"The KWT scholarship brought hope to my life at a time when I had no means of financing my studies. I have acquired lots of useful skills that will enable me to shape my career path. I am currently a community worker leading a project that deals with elimination of an invasive species (Prosopis juliflora) locally known as Mathenge plant in Archer’s area in Samburu that is suppressing the native plant species which act as windbreakers and habitat for wildlife. I am now able to accomplish my dreams while at the same time assist my family financially."
