Who is MaMa?

We are the marginalized local fishermen and supporters of
Kenya's Malindi seacoast. The sea is our "Mama", so we
named our movement after her.

Our livelihood is being stolen!

Our communities have practiced sustainable fishing for
over one thousand years. Pirate fishing interests,
government corruption and negligence are now wiping out
the resources from which we live.

What are we fighting for?

Collective responsibility and effective law enforcement to
protect our heritage and reclaim our prosperity.
