Partnering for the Youth

Strategic partnerships are essential for development of a viable National Action Plan that will ensure relevant policy formulation, actionable strategies, legislative advocacy and development of youth-centred programs at national and county levels.

This was affirmed during a meeting between Rev Canon Chris Kinyanjui, the General Secretary of NCCK, Otto Kivinen, the Deputy Head of Mission of the Embassy of Finland and Christine Odera, the Co-Chair of the Kenya Coalition on Youth Peace and Security.

Discussions during the meeting focused on assessing avenues of collaboration to effectively address the youth dividend in the nation.

While presenting an overview of NCCK’s youth programmes, Rev Canon Chris emphasized that “the Council is deliberate about getting young people on the table. Not as servers, but as decision makers.” He especially highlighted the empowerment of youth to demand issue-based campaigns which resulted in an outbreak of peace during the 2022 General Elections.

Otto Kivinen, the Deputy Head of Mission for the Embassy of Finland, underscored the significance of strong partnerships and synergistic efforts in tackling pivotal issues like optimizing the youth dividend.

“As a coalition, we would like to tap on NCCK’s experience for guidance on the best approaches,” stated Christine Odera.

Accompanying the General Secretary were the NCCK National Program Officer overseeing Youth initiatives, as well as two accomplished youth community leaders representing Kibera and Baba Dogo
