Yukabeth Kidenda

Yukabeth Kidenda is the co-founder of Teach for Kenya, an organisation aimed at supporting underprivileged communities to access quality education.

She founded the organization Human Link through which she was able to support hundreds of at-risk youth in Kenya through mentorship, academic assistance, and healthcare.  

After graduating from Strathmore University in Kenya, Yukabeth spent a year as a teacher in Honduras. On returning home, she was unable to find a job for over a year, which made her question her beliefs about quality education and led to a paradigm shift. 

Before Teach For Kenya, Yukabeth worked for ALX, an initiative of the African Leadership Group, and served as the Fellowship Director at Metis, an organization that works to accelerate the pace of education reform across the African continent by supporting Africans running high quality education initiatives
