Year after year, we come together to discuss progress made in eradicating TB, and to renew our resolve in this fight. Why do we note this day every year?
I am very pleased to be here today to help launch this important partnership between the Kenya Electricity Generating Company Limited, KenGen, and the U.S. Power Africa initiative, which seeks to bring 2,500 megawatts of low-cost, clean power on line in Kenya over the next ten years.
I am delighted to be here this morning for the launch of this expansive vocational scholarship program. I thank all the partners who made this possible—KCB Foundation, civil society, the Government of Kenya, our colleagues in the private sector, USAID Nilinde. Most of all, I thank and commend the many young adults taking advantage of the opportunities this program will afford. It is your energy, your ingenuity, and your earnestness that inspires us and will underpin the future prosperity of Kenya.
During the course of implementation in 2015, the counties, AHADI and USAID have learnt key lessons that have informed our activities in 2016.
Leading Kenyan environmentalists, government officials, and international donors gathered in Narok yesterday for World Wildlife Day 2016. This year’s theme, “The Future of Wildlife is in Our Hands,” is particularly appropriate to Kenya, which remains a critical front in the effort to stop the global illegal trade in wildlife.
