Areas of Focus in the County

  1. Maternal Health:
    With major focus on reduction on maternal mortality rate, this has remained unacceptably high.
    Most maternal deaths are due to causes directly related to pregnancy and childbirth, obstetric complications such as hypertensive disorders, severe bleeding, infection, obstructed labor and unsafe abortion. My aim is to establish a center to help curb the high maternal mortality rate in the county.
  2. Education;
    There are high rates of non- going school children in the county despite the introduction of free primary education. In Quite many places in the county pupils still don’t have classrooms, some study under the trees or even on the rocks with few teachers. Being an educationist, It sadness my heart, it is my duty to see that the education system in the county improves.
  3. Women and youth economic Empowerment;
    Through entrepreneurship training and establishment of small scale enterprises in the county. Already there are projects that l have initiated and are currently running, there is the rabbit project, tissue banana, salonists association where they can learn and improve their businesses among others. A lot of entrepreneurship training need to be done in the county. My goal is to establish a center that caters for entrepreneurial training for women and the youth.
  4. Gender based violence;
    Women and the girls rights need to be protected it has been widely acknowledged that the majority of persons affected by gender-based violence are women and girls, as a result of unequal distribution of resources in society between women and men. Further, women and girls victims of violence suffer specific consequences as a result of gender discrimination. Sensitization campaigns need to be carried -out in the county. The girls need to be kept in schools, l run a foundation that caters for the school going girls, which donates sanitary towels to schools.
