Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world

#NTAKIRUTI James

Welcoming message from CEO

Dear Partners, supporters and followers of YIDA, It is believed that youths are at the forefront of developing communities through resilience and commitment mostly during times of crisis like the pandemic, wars and climate changes. It is then unfortunate that most of the systems and policies in government and non-government structures at different levels do not favour or consider youth and the crisis situation worsens. Youth pass through hard times to legalize their own entities and have less engagement in decision-making that concerns them even in national planning. Still, many companies do not trust that youth can be trusted and invest in their ideas even when youth show that they can pay back with interest or proper accountability

OUR MISSION

We seek to provide a quality education that forecasts creating sustainable careers.

YIDA seeks to educate youth and children in the African communities to have a sustainable life. The mission is being archived through school construction, mentoring, influencing policy change and community engagement

HOME LEARNING EXPERIENCE WITH YIDA DURING THE COVID 19 PANDEMIC

In response to that critical need in early childhood education in the Settlement YIDA has initiated three ECD Centres and trained up to 36 youth providing community based care protection in the three ECD’s. It’s sad that most of the school enrolled children didn’t benefit from the continuous learning during the lock down, except around 1,026 children that YIDA has been providing the door to door home learning from 4 ECD”s with one from the host community.

THE TEAM BEHIND OUR SUCCESS

WE’RE A GREAT TEAM THAT WORKS TOGETHER, SURVIVES TOGETHER AND WINS TOGETHER. WE BELIEVE IN VISION, HARMONY AND COHERENCE. OUR TEAM IS LIKE A FAMILY WHERE THE STRENGTH OF EACH MEMBER IS THE TEAM AND THE STRENGTH OF THE TEAM IS EACH OF ITS MEMBERS.
