PS Korir tells Thika youth to prepare for life after "Kazi Mtaani"


A Youth from Kiandutu enjoy a light moment with the guests led by PS State Department of Youth at Ministry of ICT, Innovation & Youth Julius Korir during a tour in Thika.
Youth working in the “Kazi Mtaani” Programme have been advised to form groups and take advantage of the numerous government programmes and opportunities to improve on their future.


Speaking on Tuesday while inspecting the work being done by the youth in Thika, Principal Secretary, State Department of Youth at Ministry of ICT, Innovation & Youth Julius Korir said that time was ripe for the youth to start seeking contracts from organisations such as the Kenya Urban Roads Authority (KURA) and Kenya Rural Roads Authority (KeRRA) which had so much work to clear bushes along their roads.


Korir encouraged them to start saving for the future as this programmed would not last for long.


“View this opportunity that you have been given as a stepping stone to greater things. Learn to save what you are earning now and use the money as seed capital to start your own businesses,” he said.


The PS directed the area youth officers to create time to occasionally teach entrepreneurship skills to these youth to prepare them for life after the programme.


“Assist them to form these groups and how to get funding from UWEZO Fund, Youth Fund or AGAAF," Korir told the officers.


The PS was accompanied by the Central Region Youth Coordinator Francis Nderitu, the Chief Executive Officer  National Youth Council Roy Sasaka Telewa, the Secretary Youth Affairs, Raymond Ochieng, Kiambu Director for Youth affairs Jacinta Migwi, Thika West DCC Douglas Mutai among others.
