Congratulations to the Government and people of Bomet on the development and launch of your first-ever county strategic investment plan!

To Governor Ruto, thank you for recognizing the importance that investment plays in development, and for taking action to bring the investment community together in one room.

USAID has a powerful partnership with Bomet, and there are so many things we have already achieved together.  We have been working in Bomet for a long time.   There’s a reason why you see the big USAID sign on the way to Tenwek Hospital.

Yes Youth supports the empowerment of Kenyan youth as envisioned in the 2010 constitution. The program aims to develop peaceful leaders among 18-35 year-olds, with the complementary objective of improving their socioeconomic status.

Yes Youth Can Nairobi has empowered youth to participate effectively in political leadership and governance, build entrepreneurial skills to engage in livelihood activities and enhance their socio-economic base.

The Laikipia Natural Resource Management and Biodiversity Conservation Program supports the Laikipia Wildlife Forum, a membership-based organization established to conserve Laikipia’s wildlife and ecosystem integrity. The program brings Laikipia communities together to conserve and sustainably use the natural resources on which they depend.

Yes Youth Can Rift Valley is a youth program that puts youth squarely in the driver’s seat to determine their own future. Based in Kenya’s Rift Valley, an area that experienced some of the worst post-election violence after Kenya’s 2007 presidential election, the Yes Youth Can program supports young leaders or “bright spots” to champion the potential of their peers.

Yes Youth Can Western is a youth program that improves the social and economic status of youth in Western Province, Kenya. The program empowers Kenyan youth to exhibit leadership in peace building, social service, and economic prosperity for holistic community development.
