Lodwar, June 19 -- The U.S. Ambassador to Kenya Robert F. Godec visited members of the Turkana Widows Advancement Program at a greenhouse that they operate in Lodwar Town. The greenhouse is one of several livelihood activities that enable the community members to care for themselves and the orphans and vulnerable children for whom they are caregivers. USAID funded the members to be trained on how to grow nutritious produce for consumption and sale, and the Ministry of Agriculture provided the greenhouse. USAID supplied the water tank to irrigate the greenhouse crops.
The National Health Management Information System activity (AfyaInfo) works to establish an integrated government-owned and managed health management information system that is coordinated at national and county levels. The goal is to generate quality data and improve the culture of information generation, which should ultimately improve health service delivery.
Hamjambo mabibi na mabwana. Good afternoon and thank you for inviting me to launch this important project with you. Today we celebrate another achievement that will bring water and sanitation to more Kenyans, and that is truly something to celebrate.
U.S. Ambassador to Kenya Robert F. Godec joined Governor of Embu County, Nyaga Wambora, to launch a new water distribution system in Embu County. The new Embu Water and Sewerage Company (EWASCO) system will expand water access to an additional 6,000 households and more than 100 schools, clinics, and community buildings in Mbeer and surrounding low-income communities of Embu County. The system also serves as a model for how to transform Kenya’s water and sanitation sector with private financing.
