Development Agenda:  

Education

Isukha South ward is highly affected by high numbers of school drop outs basically due to financial constraints by parents and guardians. Margret purposes to lobby the county government and donors to create a ward bursary kitty that will help raise funds to pay school fees for needy students. The kitty will be a long-term solution to the problem since she intends to see that the students are supported through out their entire academic journey and not offering one time bursaries.

Agriculture

Residents of Isukha South ward depend on sugarcane farming as their main economic activity but sugarcane farming is no longer lucrative thus farmers are struggling to make ends meet. Margret purposes to work with county Agriculture Extension Officers and other stakeholders to run a sensitization campaign geared towards encouraging to venture into planting other crops such as mushrooms, maize, tomatoes etc. that will make them economically sound.

Health

Many young children of school going age are out of school in Isukha South  ward due to jigger infections and the girl child also misses school due to lack of sanitary pads thus every month they are forced to miss classes. Margret intends to champion for issues affecting school children by ensuring that their schooling is not interfered with. She purposes to work with donors and stakeholders to curb the jigger menace in the ward and come up with a program of distributing free reusable sanitary towels to all primary and secondary schools in the ward.
