GS calls for collaboration to create opportunities for youths

The General Secretary of the NCCK, Rev Canon Chris Kinyanjui, has called on development partners to help translate the skills held by the youth into jobs. This, he said, would include supporting businesses to expand so as to employ more youths.

“How do we support that shop, or that supermarket to employ ten more people, how do we support that textile industry that is here in Mombasa, that is in Kisumu, so that they can employ two more young people who can then earn a decent living?” he posed.

He pointed out that there is a need for all actors, including the national and county governments, to create a better place for the youth and citizens.

“Living in such a volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous environment, we need to join hands and work together to create a better place for our youth,” said Rev Canon Chris.

Rev Canon Chris was speaking during the Global Opportunity Youth Network (GOYN) 4th Annual Convening currently ongoing at Mombasa, being hosted by the Swahilipot Hub.

The Convening has brought together 1,000 youth from Mexico, Senegal, South Africa, Colombia, India, USA, Tanzania, and Kenya, according them opportunity to connect and share insights on successful youth engagements and livelihood practices. The participants, aged 15 – 29 years, are especially assessing the power of place-based collaboration and pathways.

Speaking at the convening, the head of Global Development Incubator (GDI) in Africa, Alice Gugelev committed to partnering with NCCK to spread the opportunity youth network across Kenya.
