TINADA Youth Organisation TINADA Youth Organisation


TINADA work to ensure that every young person has the opportunity to learn and grow, no matter their background or circumstances. Many young people do not have the ability to access their right to education because of a myriad of reasons including family socio-economic status, natural disasters, wars and conflicts. TINADA Youth organization is determined to enable these children to start school well, get retained and transition across levels. This will be done through creation of innovative models that promote access and enable retention despite the context specific challenges. TINADA youth organization will also create centers of excellence that protect the mental health and wellbeing of learners and enable completion of school.

In Kenya, there are a number of children who aren’t in school because of myriad reasons including disasters or are kicked out regularly because their families can’t pay the basic fees. These children live in fear of being called from class and sent home. Some families in rural and informal settlements cannot afford to support their children's education because of extreme poverty. While millions of children are living a life on the move, left homeless because of factors such as war, famine, and natural disasters. And a life on the move leads to a higher chance of family separation, leaving children having nobody to care for them, elevating the risk of drop outs. Poor-quality teaching and large class sizes still affect the quality of children's learning. The pupil-to-teacher ratio remains very high in some counties. In pastoral communities a perceived lack of value of schooling, long distances to schools and high rates of child marriage all contribute to untimely termination of education before completion of basic levels.

The program will work with government, partners, private sectors, CSOs to help increase enrolment, retention and learning outcomes for girls and boys in pre-primary and secondary education. It will put particular emphasis on rural, remote areas, informal settlement, arid and semi-arid land for support. This strategy focuses on involving young people in meaningful and effective education including those with disabilities. We shall also concentrate on innovation, refugee education and alternative ways to provide basic education.
