At least 2000 youth from Naivasha will benefit from the kazi mtaani government sponsored project.
The programme which will see the 2000 young men and women engaged in casual jobs was launched by Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui.
The 2000 slots in Naivasha have been distributed to benefit youth from KCC, Kihoto, Karagita and Kamere. The program is also ongoing in Nakuru town west, NAKURU TOWN EAST and Elburgon towns
Most of the beneficiaries are flower farm workers who were laid off due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on horticulture markets globally.
The youth will work on clearing drainage among other casual jobs and we will work with the National Government to have more enrolled in the program
The programme was initiated by the national government to cushion young people who have been rendered jobless as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Beneficiaries are paid to engage in cleanup of drainage, bush clearing among other casual jobs
The National Youth Service is tasked with supervision of the project while the provincial administration is the coordinator of the same.
The programme was piloted in Nairobi, Mombasa,Nakuru and Kisumu and is expected to be rolled out in other major towns across the country in its second phase.
