Teach For Kenya is committed to working alongside committed young leaders, schools, and communities to enhance the academic and non-academic experiences for all Kenyan children regardless of their socio-economic backgrounds. Our student vision is that one day, every child will excel in the following competencies:

  • Leadership: Students view themselves as leaders rather than followers. They are able to set bold audacious goals for themselves and work strategically towards achieving them. 
  • Self-efficacy: Students are able to identify personal strengths and believe in their capacity to contribute positively to the overall development of their country. They have built an appreciation for the nation’s diverse resources and strengths and are proud of their nationality.
  • Life-long learners: Students develop a love and eagerness for learning and take ownership of their learning journeys. They are interested in learning more about the challenges facing their communities and coming up with innovative ways to solve them. 
  • Critical thinking: Students are able to solve problems quickly in tricky situations and constantly improve their methods. Students have developed an appreciation for data and its critical role in decision-making. 
  • Empathy: Students are able to understand and respond appropriately to how others feel. They will create strong relationships and become emotionally aware.
  • Collaboration: Students will be able to work well with others and welcome new perspectives and come up with solutions.

Fellowship Impact

Recruitment growth: The number of applications has gradually increased from (year one) 2020 to (year three) 2022. There was a slight increase from year one 563 to year two 725 and to year three 3078. The exponential increase in the number of applications can be attributed to innovative ways of mobilization. More and more young Kenyans are willing to dedicate two years of their lives to supporting children to learn.

Leadership Growth

Teach For Kenya Fellows and Alumni have been going above and beyond to lead positive change in the lives of underprivileged Kenyan children and their communities. As leaders, they have collaborated with schools and communities to expand opportunities for their students to learn, lead and thrive.

Teacher Professional Development

Teach For Kenya partnered with ProFuturo, a digital education program from Spain, promoted by Telefónica Foundation and ¨la Caixa¨ Foundation to narrow the education gap in the world by improving the quality of education for millions of children living in vulnerable environments of Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, and Asia. Through this program, we have trained 44 Teach For Kenya Fellows by elevating their knowledge on; Vision and Planning, Classroom Management, Digital Literacy, and Emotional Education.  Additionally, we have cascaded this knowledge across Nairobi and Homa Bay County and successfully trained 1440 in-service teachers. The teachers went  through 9 modules in line with the new CBC curriculum and 21st-century skills.  Through Teach For Kenya’s work, the lives of 40,000 + children are being impacted positively through the provision of high-quality teachers who lead their classrooms with empathy and kindness.
