History of Diani Rules

Diani Rules was started in 1990 by Iain & Angus Leckie, Marc Wollmann and Kathy Robertson, to try and persuade people that the coast was not such a bad place during the rainy season.

The funds raised in the first year were donated to Galu Kinondo Primary school where they were given teachers' tables, doors, chairs and school desks. The following two years funds were turned into school desks and the schools in the district were asked to write letters applying for desks.


Dr Helen Roberts MBE then started an Eye Hospital in Kwale District, in 1993 & the group decided to give the proceeds to the hospital from then on.

Diani Rules has been kindly hosted by:
