National Youth Council To Continue Supporting Youths To Fight the Covid Effects


The National Youth Council (NYC) has now  called on youths to be firm and use every opportunity so that they can remain afloat despite the economical effects brought by Covid-19.

NYC  Chief Executive Officer Roy Sasaka Telewa says they have been empowering youths during this period by  giving  different groups sanitizers and masks so that they can use when engaging in their daily hustles.

‘‘This pandemic has harassed us and its also true that life must continue, we have engaged partners and we  have been providing sanitizers and masks to our youths in slums,boda boda riders among others  so that they continue with their normal  hustle when they are  safe.’’ Telewa said.

He also asked youths to utilize the Kazi Mtaani program and empower themselves during this period.

‘‘Take advantage of this  Kazi Mtaani project visits your chiefs office and apply for these jobs, empower yourself.’’

In the  2020/2021 budget the government has set aside a total of 10  billion shillings for the  Kazi Mtaani program.
