In a bid to monitor the progress of the national roll-out of 4K clubs, the CAS Agriculture, Anne Nyaga held a meeting with the Nyeri County Coordination unit at the Deputy County Commissioner’s office Nyeri. Speaking at the forum, the CAS insisted on the importance of reeling in the youth to Agriculture which not only brings sustainability but also could be a source of livelihood.
The roll-out process, she noted, is currently at a stage where 12 teams across the country are training county staff and teachers who will thereafter translate the same to students. Further, a directive has been sent out by the Principal Secretary to the Directors of Education to start up 4K clubs in primary schools and Young Farmers clubs in secondary schools to ensure continuity. The 4k Clubs Presidential award scheme has also been introduced in the newly rebranded and revitalized 4k clubs. Clubs will participate at different levels: schools, wards, sub-county, and county levels.
The ultimate winner at the national level will be awarded by the 4k Club’s patron, H.E President Uhuru Kenyatta.
