Linda Bonyo

Linda Bonyo

Board Chairperson

Her passion for Good Governance and Public policy saw her graduate from the Political Leadership Development Programme courtesy of the Youth Agenda and Fredrich Ebert Stiftung. She served ProBono in the inaugural committee that set up the YAGPO programme working on Youth access to government procurement opportunities under the Treasury and Ministry of Finance aiding young individuals and youth groups to formalise and regularise their businesses to access government tenders. Previously, Linda has worked for various non-governmental organisations including Transparency international , The Ombudsman, The Cradle Child rights Foundation, and CLEAR (Christian Legal Education Aid and Research Kenya).

 

Linda is a member of the Law Society of Kenya, East Africa Law Society, The Pan-Africa Lawyers Union, Amnesty International, the Kenya Christian Lawyers Fellowship, Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA) and the International Commission of Jurists where she supports the call for social justice. Her work in Tech policy has seen her collaborate with organizations across the African Continent in advocating and drafting the manifesto for an innovation policy for Innovation Hubs in Africa and offering technical support in the drafting of the Senegalese Startup Act with partners such as i4Policy, Africa Development Bank and the World Bank.

 

Linda is a visionary and a generation shaper, who hopes to steer the Youth Agenda to be at the frontline of government affirmative actions to ensure that the youth have opportunities to associate, be represented and participate in political, social, economic and other spheres of life as stipulated in the 2010 Constitution.
