Samburu West marked the National Youth Week themed ‘Transforming education through talent development’ in style with over 800 themed children sponsored by Compassion International from across the county and various churches. Children are the future and we must invest in them.
We also marked the day by planting 200 trees. It is of utmost importance that we preserve our Mother Nature by increasing forest cover and reducing the stress on the environment as a result of deforestation.
Samburu West youths had a chance to showcase their talents and I believe there will be more opportunities like these. Thank you Kubamba Crew, Safaricom and BLAZE for mentoring our children and also for offering to record with a young upcoming gospel artist. Indeed, talent can pay.
We met a lady abled differently who does school sweaters and we were so impressed that her disability is not inability. She requested for a container to do her business in and together with all the guests present we raised 340,000 for her to start up.
Finally, through NGCDF we are training and issuing BodaBoda Licences to 200 youths who are unable to pay. I also issued Ksh 200,000 to the ongoing Consolata Cup. We are committed to doing more in the next financial years.
We send our appreciation to the Ministry of Public Service, Youth and Gender for honouring our constituency, CAS @Racheal Shebesh, Hon. Sabina Chege, Hon. Millie Mabona, Hon. Gladwell Tungo, Hon. Babu Owino, County Government led by Governor Moses Lenolkula Kasaine, County Assembly led by the speaker Solomon Lempere, Antony Kibagendi Youth Advisor Office of DP, Kubamba, BLAZE, Safaricom, KYPA led by Anthony Buluma, Secretary Administration Muktar, Noel of Kkrew and all the national administrators present.
Most importantly the amazing youths of Samburu West and residents who took their time to participate and be part of this day.
