Youth and women empowerment

Nyacheki ward has a huge number of educated youth and women who are jobless thus they involve themselves in criminal activities. Lenah intends to carry out a proposal with an aim of providing a solution to youth unemployment in the ward and also work with other stakeholders to hook young people with employers and opportunities. She also intends to establish a kitty that she will use in purchasing motorbike and Tuk-tuk taxis to distribute to unskilled youths within the ward to enable them earn a living. She also intends to encourage youth and women groups to apply for funds that are allocated for them to set up businesses.


Nyacheki ward has few public health facilities that have a shortage of medical personnel, drugs and do not have enough proper medical facilities. Lenah intends to lobby the county government to allocate funds for the establishment of additional health facilities and employment of additional health personnel.


Nyacheki ward receives plenty of rainfall but people still fetch water from rivers and springs because they don’t harvest water for future use. Lenah purposes to work with local women groups and the community in general and train them on water harvesting methods. She also purposes to encourage them in their groups to support each other so that at least every home gets a water tank to store water during rainy seasons. She also intends to train them how to construct underground tanks for harvesting rain water so that they can always have enough water in their homes.
