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.
