Red Cross signs MoU with Bomet County

26 June 2014, 15:39

Bomet - Bomet County and the Kenya Red Cross Society (KRCS) signed a multibillion-shilling memorandum of understanding to improve the living standards of citizens in the county.

The partnership is a consequence of the county government’s request for support from the KRCS.

The project is in line with the county's Integrated Development Plan (2013/2017).

The County Government brings on board technical expertise and infrastructure in the specific thematic areas and the KRCS on the other hand fortifies the partnership with its elaborate grassroot presence and the Programme planning, management and execution experience.

According to the KRCS, the overall program goal is to contribute to improved quality of life of the residents of Bomet County for sustainable development. Programme specific objectives include: Improved food security, improved access to Kenya Essential Package of Health Services and improved access to clean water for domestic and agricultural use.

“The major programme outputs include agriculture and livestock, water and sanitation, health and nutrition. Over 77,500 people will benefit from this programme.

The project will be coordinated jointly by KRCS and Bomet County Government at Community, Sub - County and County level. KRCS shall be part of the secretariat. The proposed project sites for intervention will be: Sergutiet in Bomet Central Sub - County, Nogirwet Irrigation Scheme in Chepalungu Sub - County and Chebara Irrigation site in Chepalungu Sub – County,” said a KCRS statement on the programme.

The proposed Programme seeks to improve the Community member’s livelihood, accessibility to water, health, and food security.

The project is geared to be a flagship project of joint partnership between Kenya’s new devolved government structures with local and international partners.

It will be spearheaded by the County government of Bomet and will partner with KRCS in establishing integrated coordination mechanisms for the County government to utilise its limited resources.
