Mission

Core Values

Commitment to Community Participation and Empowerment

Development Knowledge Link – Africa

Development Knowledge Link Africa (DEVLINK) is a non governmental organization (not for profit) founded in 2003 with the aim of addressing human right concerns for vulnerable grassroot women and children with special emphasis on health, education and livelihoods.

 The organization targets women and children living with HIV/AIDS, survivors of gender based violence, Orphans and vulnerable children.

DEVLINK has been engaged in several frontline human rights programs geared towards health promotion, access to justice, entrepreneurship and employment creation. As an Organization, Economic empowerment for women is our entry point to the community because without income it will be very difficult to address health and education challenges in the community. Until a community have financial independence it will not be easy to achieve good health and access to quality education. We offer skills training and community saving groups 

DEVLINK runs a community healthcare facility to provide health services and promote the rights of women to access dignified maternal healthcare, we also run an integrated Drop in Centre targeting the fisherfolk whose health seeking behaviour is a challenge. An Integrated Drop In Centre (DICE) is a one stop shop where patients receive both health care education and treatment at the same time. The purpose is to increase access to health of the Most at Risk Population (MARPs) with special emphasis to fisher folk whose health seeking behaviour has been a challenge to the Ministry of health especially on HIV/AIDS prevention and sexual and reproductive health services.

Staff Team building

Closing the year by bringing our staff together for team building at our 2022 end of year party while celebrating our progress, achievements and each other's presence.
