The department of youth sports, gender, labour and social security services is in the fore- front working towards an all inclusive society devoid of any form of discrimination based on one’s gender, religion, race or ethnicity. We have in the last three years implemented pro- grams that aim to uplift the economic prospects of our youth through capacity building to develop their talents and entrepreneurial culture.
The County government of Baringo is committed to the development of sports infrastructure, and is improving them further in the coming financial year.
The construction of stadiums at kabarnet and Elda- ma Ravine as well as the development of two athletics camps at sirwa, Otany and Ossen will go a long way in enhancing the development of young people on matters sports.
Furthermore, the department has made strides inensuring that our old citizens and persons with disabilities (PWD’s) are given support.
So far, the County government through the Baringo persons with disabilities and elderly grant programe has given monthly stipend of Ksh 2000 to 210 beneficiaries drawn across the County besides NHIF cover of Ksh 500 every month.
The department has also spearheaded the campaign against gender based violence like early marriages and female genital mutilation perpetuated against individuals.
These social vices have negated the gains made towards achieving social transformation within our society and the perpetrators must be brought to book.
