Ikutha CCCD Multi Year Program Launched

The National Council of Churches of Kenya has today launched the multi-annual Ikutha Child Centered Community Development Project. The launch was the climax of the Day of the African Child celebrations in Kitui County that were officiated by the General Secretary, Rev Canon Chris Kinyanjui. Kitui County Governor, Dr Julius Malombe, was represented by Hon Phoebe Mutemi, the County Executive Committee member for Gender, Youth and Culture.

With a goal of contributing to improved wellbeing of children, the 8-year Ikutha CCCD is aimed at increasing child protection and participation and enhancing livelihoods of vulnerable households. In addition, the project will train community members on parenting skills, and empower youths for self reliance. These will be buttressed on improving access to water, sanitation and hygiene, and support for school retention and performance.

The Ikutha CCCD program is a partnership between the NCCK and HACA (Help A Child Africa).

Overall, the program is seeking to transform the lives of 2,500 children, 1,500 vulnerable households, and 400 youths in Ikutha Ward, Kitui County.

Speaking during the launch, Rev Canon Chris Kinyanjui, the General Secretary, observed that economic wellbeing of parents is essential for sustenance of human rights.

“We are working with self help groups to build a culture of saving one’s income and investing it income generating ventures”, Canon Chris explained to the 800 participants in the Day of the African Child forum.
