The lodge also works to promote local schemes to help local people develop new skills and find different ways of supporting themselves. The Luwawa Environmental Trust helps local residents with sustainable management of the forests around the Luwawa area. The Trust has also opened an environmental education centre for use by local schools and tourists alike.
