David Rochus

Programme Manager and Senior Speech & Language Therapist

David is one of the very first SLTs to qualify in East Africa and was employed by Yellow House in June 2011. He has been paramount to the success Yellow House has had over the years. David is a creative and innovative therapist who works hard to ensure a high quality of service is delivered by himself and the team he manages. David is currently finishing his Masters in Public Health and is applying a lot of what he has learnt into the context of developing a SLT service in East Africa.

Jesse Mbote

Speech and Language Therapist

Jesse started working with YH in April 2016 and is a newly qualified SLT graduating from Makerere University, Kampala. Jesse is acting as YH’s ‘guinea pig’ as we build his clinical capacity as well as trialling our model of professional development. Jesse continues to grow as an SLT and enriches our services in many ways. We are happy that Jesse feels that YH is now his ‘family’ and our favourite quote from him about working with us is that YH is ‘perfectly perfect’!

Florence Olouch

Parent Liaison Officer | Administrative Assistant

Where would we be without our Flo?! Flo started working with YH in January 2014 as our PLO after we met her and her beautiful daughter Edna. Flo’s role is to support parents in their acceptance of their child with disabilities and ensure they understand the therapeutic process – there’s no better way to demonstrate acceptance than by modelling it with your own daughter. Flo’s confidence and abilities grow each day and she definitely keeps the rest of the team in check!!

Gregory Naynazi

Parent Liaison Officer

Gregory is the latest person to join our growing team, starting in August 2016. Gregory works on our LEAP project and will be developing parent support groups which aim to inform parents about the importance of education for their child(ren). Gregory has a wealth of experience in this role already, with the wonderful work he has been doing in Mumias with a parent support group there. Gregory is a great advocate for people with disabilities and will support the success of the LEAP project.

Board of Trustees

Yellow House Health and Outreach Services is an independent Charitable Trust. The Trust’s governing document is our Constitution and the Board of Trustees work alongside the CEO, Rachael, to ensure the work Yellow House carries out is always in line with the Constitution and our mission and vision.

Our Trustees come from a background of health and education work in Kenya and have worked with Yellow House over the course of its operations. We recently welcomed Nick Kempson to the Board who is currently the Programme Director for an NGO called Vibrant Village.

Our Volunteer Advisory Committee is made up of people from all over the world who are committed to supporting the work Yellow House does. Each member of the Committee donates their valuable time to work with us from afar in varying capacities, skills and endeavours.
