Development Knowledge Link Africa


Devlink envisages a healthy, innovative, empowered and a just society for all


To foster innovative and sustainable initiatives among the most vulnerable communities in health, education and livelihoods for holistic development through partnerships

Core Values

Commitment to Community Participation and Empowerment

Development Knowledge Link – Africa

Development Knowledge Link – Africa (DEVLINK) was registered in Kenya in April 2003 as a civil  society organization under the NGO Coordination Act, with the registration number OP.218/051/2003/0114/2624 as a national  Non-partisan, Non-Government and Non-profit making organization with the aim of addressing  human rights programs  targeting women and children in the community.

We are committed to the promotion of human rights for the most vulnerable members of the community with special emphasis on dignified livelihoods as the only guarantee to individual freedom. Since its inception, DEVLINK has invested heavily  in several frontline human rights initiatives geared towards health, education, gender and  governance through skill transfer and information sharing.

Re enrollment of school drought out teenage mothers

One of the domains addressed by DEVLINK through MWENDO OVC project is schooled which ensures that all children of school going age are enrolled in school, Maurine Achieng Ogolla is one of the adolescent teenage mothers that dropped out of school due to pregnancy in the wake of COVID 19 long holiday in which her uncles who sponsored her education now declined to pay her school fee since she got pregnant. We noticed this on our visit to the school in which we traced her together with her teachers and re enrolled her back to school. It was evident that she really needed to go back to school as she challenged us when we visited her family alongside her teachers.
