Good morning!

Honorable Felix Koskei, Cabinet Secretary, Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries; Distinguished Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen. 

I am delighted to join you at today’s rollout of the Agri-Nutrition Resource Manual for Trainers. USAID is proud to have partnered with the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries and the Ministry of Health to create a toolkit that helps rural Kenyans improve their nutrition and resiliency. Healthier people are better able to adapt to survive periods of drought or famine. For 50 years, the United States has partnered with the Government of Kenya to reach our joint development objectives. This is one more example of how we can work together to realize a better future.

The Agri-Nutrition Resource Manual and Toolkit is an important step toward teaching households and communities how to integrate nutrition more effectively into their everyday lives. Improved nutrition reduces lifestyle diseases and builds the resiliency of rural families, helping them endure times of drought or high food prices.

I am honored to be here with you today in support of the Kenya Union of Savings & Credit Co-operatives (KUSCCO), which is increasing access to cook stoves for Kenyan consumers through the “Jiko Safi” cook stove-specific credit facility. 

Clean cook stoves reduce fuel consumption, reduce indoor air pollution, and improve efficiencies that ultimately save tens of thousands of Shillings per year for the average Kenyan household, as well as reducing health risks.
