In an effort to revive the declining state of Lake Victoria, the Restore Lake Victoria Campaign led by a consortium of environmental activists seeks to reclaim the lost glory of one of Africa’s great lakes.
Some of the members are drawn from Jijenge Youth Organization, Twins World, Better Me, Us For The Street foundation and the Jitokeze Tupande Miti campaign.
The campaign is aimed at creating awareness and promoting conservation efforts around the lake, which has been facing numerous challenges including pollution and overfishing.
Activities during the campaign included a boat ride, story-telling sessions that used indigenous knowledge to promote conservation, and sensitizing fishermen on sustainable blue economy practices.
