The Ford Kenya youth league in Trans Nzoia County has embarked on a community social responsibility program that has seen officials mobilize resources to reach out to the less privileged in the society though charity.
The league under the leadership of Aggrey Simiyu Nalianya has reached out to several needy groups among them widows, orphans and widows by supplying them with basic necessities like foodstuffs and spending time with them.
On Saturday the group spent time with children at the Fun Faith and Restoration Ministry Child Care at Milimani estate-Kitale in an event dubbed “Chapati Festival” which saw them mingle with the kids and shared food.
“We utilized the time we spent at the center to bond with the Kids where we encouraged them and made them feel the relevance they have in the society. We had fun and shared Chapati meal with them,” said Mr. Nalianya.
The group recently visited the Esther Homes Rescue Center for Young Mothers, located at Naisambu area. The facility offers a second chance of education to teenage mothers who are normally ejected by society.
“We reached out to the girls with some support of bedding and clothing. We commended them for the bold step of pursuing their studies while at the same time looking after their children,” said Mr. Erastus Masinde.
According to Ruth Juma who is among the leagu’s officials, the charity programmes are part of their initiative to offer a helping hand without considering political affiliations of the ones they assist in their reach out programmes.
“We endeavour to intensify our humanitarian assistance by reaching to those we can whenever we are in position. We are doing this out of the realization that little efforts can make this world a better place,” said Ms Juma.
