NGO to teach youth on devolution

01 August 2014, 22:29

Trans-Nzoia - An NGO funded by the United Nations has launched a programme aimed at sensitizing the youth in five constituencies of Trans-Nzoia County, on how they can benefit from the devolution.

The organization Vijana Umoja Foundation which works in collaboration United Nations First Education Initiative  has  begun  a capacity building trainings targeting young people in the county, which  seeks to empower them in advocacy and governance.

Speaking to journalists after a sensitization workshop in Endebess Sub-County on Thursday, Diphus Ngeny the executive director of the organization said the programme was prompted by realization that most young people are not benefiting at all from the devolved system of government.

Ngeny who is also the Africa Global Youth Ambassador decried the exclusion of  young people  in  county and  national  government tenders,  despite the existing provisions in the constitution that they are entitled to 30 per cent of the same.

“We are building awareness among the young people. We are starting with a selected 15 youths in each of the five sub-counties in Trans-Nzoia , who we will send to the grassroots after the end of the training  to educate their peers. Our aim is to have a more informed citizenry” said Ngeny.

“And is not only about tenders, we are also creating awareness among the group on other existing financial opportunities that they can take advantage of to empower themselves economically,” he added.

He said that his organization will take similar programmes to Narok, Bomet and Kajiado Counties and added that they target to reach more than 10,000 people by the end of the programme

“We have also planned forums between the youth with the various county leaderships in the regions, to push them to involve young people in their activities and consider them in any opportunities that will arise in the areas,” said Ngeny.
