The County Government of Nakuru has started working with partners in formulating vibrant post-COVID-19 recovery plans for economic development.
County Chief Officer for Gender Dr. William Migwe says Covid-19 had negatively impacted on local women, who form the bulk of Nakuru County.
He said County has partnered with the UN-Women and the Council of Governors in training local women on COVID-19 economic recovery strategies.
“Today, women leaders from across the county are attending a workshop in Nakuru on County COVID-19 socio-economic reengineering and recovery strategy,” he stated.
Dr. Migwe added that the County is working on an effective and flexible financing plan to support women in business reeling from losses occasioned by the pandemic.
Currently, he said, the County Government of Nakuru is working with women groups in economic interventions such as the mass production of face masks, PPEs, and sanitizers.
County Director for Gender Celina Nkatha said the County targets to train over 100 women leaders on easing the economic fallout and will in turn train members of groups they lead.
