Kuda & Ruth Zvinoera

Transforming lives of at-risk youth and their families through education

Ruth and Kuda met while working with at-risk youth in Harare, Zimbabwe. Ruth had studied child psychology and had experience teaching, and Kuda had experience in software engineering and teaching English as a Second Language. Both had interned with local organizations and felt called to focus on the education of at-risk kids – especially kids on the streets. Kuda is the Associate Pastor of Emerald Hill Community Church in Harare and oversees the Youth and Evangelism Ministries, in addition to others.

Ruth and Kuda co-founded the Kuvamba Trust in 2015, a nonprofit entity dedicated to transforming the lives of at-risk youth through education. They believe in getting kids off the streets and into the classroom, and that giving kids a chance to learn is giving them a chance at a better life.

Their long-term vision is that urban youth turn away from desperation and crime, to hope, healthy living, and economic freedom through affordable education for street kids that matches the needs of underprivileged youth in Harare, Zimbabwe.
