Second lady, Dorcas Rigathi to introduce boy child empowerment programs.
Speaking on Wednesday she stated that the empowerment projects will be done together with the Kenya Union of Savings and Credit Cooperatives (KUSCCO), towards giving young men financial freedom.
She said,”As a government, we are very sure that we are going to partner with SACCOs and change the economy from the bottom, up. The bottom-up movement started from the cooperative movement, and these (SACCOs) are the answers to the future of Kenya; our youth, women, and vulnerable, and they also create a thriving and vibrant economy.”
Through this move, the initiatives will provide possible solutions to inadequate food access to affordable housing and other basic needs.
Goerge Ototo, CEO of KUSCCO, Promised to tap Mrs Rigathi in the back, to ensure the project is up and running.
Ototo stated,”We share in the vision of Her Excellency and her flagship projects, and we assure her of our support. At the structural level of SACCOs, we will create divisions strategically to empower the boy-child.”
“We will also contribute towards the rehabilitation of the boy-child through sports activities and other goodies and push the boy-child towards more productive activities,” he added.
