The state is committed to empowering the youth, giving them opportunities and helping them solve their problems, State House said yesterday.
A new index of global youth development shows Kenya has made the greatest strides in improving the conditions of employment of young people and their involvement in politics.
Spokesman Manoah Esipisu said the UN report shows that Kenya has seen the largest improvement in the conditions of young people over the past five years.
“Significantly, that development has been made during the administration of President Uhuru Kenyatta. We are clearly getting things right in tackling the challenges posed by the youth bulge,” he said.
Esipisu added that the Youth ministry will continue looking at ways of dealing with the problems young Kenyans face.
