Development Agenda:  

Youth Empowerment

Central Kisumu ward is a cosmopolitan area that suffers high unemployment rates, crime, drug and substance abuse, high illiteracy levels and a large number of orphan’s due to the HIV/AIDS menace. Beatrice purposes to lobby the county government to set up a rehabilitation center within the ward to help heal the youth from drug and substance abuse. She also purposes to mobilize the youths to form groups that will help them access the Uwezo Fund so that they can be able to engage in economic activities.

Empower Women

The ward has a big number of widowed women who are languishing in poverty due to the HIV/AIDS menace. Their husbands passed on from the infection and these women are struggling to make ends meet. Beatrice intends to work with the county government, donors and other stakeholders to create an awareness campaign on HIV/AIDS in the ward and also to help the women get loans or grants to set up businesses that can help sustain them and their families

Water and sanitation

It’s ironical that Kisumu is home to Lake Victoria but a majority of the residents of Central Kisumu ward are not connected to clean tap water thus they buy water from unscrupulous dealers that is contaminated and exposes them to the dangers of water borne infections that are a common occurrence in the region. Albert purposes to lobby the county government and other stakeholders to allocate funds for channeling tap water to each and every household across the ward.
