kazi mtaani application form 2021
The Government has extended the National Hygiene Programme dubbed Kazi Mtaani Initiative to June 2022 as it starts the recruitment process for the third phase.
Principal Secretary for State Department of Housing and Urban Development, Charles Hinga said the recruitment process will kick off on Friday and will be implemented in more than 900 informal settlements across all 47 counties.
An online registration portal- Kazi Mtaani Management System (KMS) has been developed where those interested will be registered in a timely, transparent and efficient manner that will be equitable across the board.
“The online portal will ensure those interested be registered in a timely, transparent and efficient manner that will be equitable across the board,” he said.
The expanded phase is aimed at equipping the youth with skills aimed at creating job opportunities as well as enabling them to engage in self-employment in fields such as plumbing, masonry, carpentry, etc.
Over 280,000 youths were employed from 1,100 informal settlements in the 47 counties during the first and second phases of the programme,
“So far, over Sh10 billion has been utilised in the programme which has put food on the table of hundreds of thousands of Kenyans and enabled thousands of youths to start small thriving businesses,” said PS Hinga.
This comes after President Uhuru Kenyatta in his remarks during Mashujaa Day promised the Kazi Mtaani Programme would be continued because it had positively impacted the lives of hundreds of thousands of youth.
