Founder & Chief Executive Officer

Yeukai Taruvinga

Active Horizons began life when Yeukai realised she had knowledge that could help others. As a political refugee with a prolonged citizenship battle on her hands, no access to education, and no right to work, Yeukai had to defend her rights at every turn to be recognised as ‘legitimate’. She pushed through years of bureaucracy to access information and services in a disjointed and contradictory public service that was unprepared to deal with cases like hers.

She eventually realised that everything she had learned could (and should) be shared to help those without the means to change their situations. And here began Active Horizons, originally set up for a small group of children to get access to extracurricular activities, but which now serves up to 50 Bexley children. Each one benefits from the skill building programmes which nurture independence and creativity to help youngsters navigate and flourish in their adult lives.
