Plans to set off Kazi Mashinani youth empowerment initiative in Trans Nzoia are complete.

This follows distribution of tools to all the 25 wards in the County which in turn will be issued out to service providers.

The distributed tools among them wheelbarrows, spades, slathers, hoes, reflectors, rakes are expected to enhance service delivery and ensure success of the program.

Speaking during the distribution exercise, Chief Officer in charge of Gender Jane Wachwenge reiterated Governor George Natembeya’s desire to enhance service delivery and ensure living standards are uplifted.

This, she stressed will ensure the public gets value for the money spend.

The Kazi Mashinani Initiative falls under the larger umbrella of Ukombozi Empowerment Programme launched by the County Government last week, which aims to uplift vulnerable groups.

The initiative has seen 2500 youth from informal settlements being recruited. They will be getting a monthly stipend of Shs 5000 each, after working for 10 days in shifts.

Besides, the youth stand a chance to access essential resources after undergoing vocational training.
