Dorcas Rigathi on empowering boychild
Second Lady Pastor Dorcas Gachagua.

Dorcas Rigathi, the second lady, has revealed her intentions to roll out statewide financial empowerment initiatives that, in her words, would be especially directed at boys and young men.

In her remarks on Wednesday, Mrs Rigathi said that the empowering projects—aimed at granting young men financial independence—would be carried out in collaboration with the Kenya Union of Savings and Credit Cooperatives (KUSCCO).

"As a government, we are certain that we will work with SACCOs to transform the economy from the ground up." "The cooperative movement gave rise to the bottom-up movement, and these (SACCOs) are the solutions for Kenya's young, women, and vulnerable, as well as for the creation of a robust and dynamic economy," Mrs Rigathi stated.

According to the Second Lady, working with cooperative organizations might lead to answers to concerns like access to affordable housing, food security, and other social difficulties.

George Ototo, the CEO of KUSCCO, who was also present, gave Mrs Rigathi the assurance that the cooperative movement will support the initiatives that will be implemented across the nation.

"We pledge to support Her Excellency and her major initiatives because we share their vision. We will intentionally build divisions at the SACCO structural level to empower the male gender," stated Mr Ototo.

"We will encourage the boy-child to engage in more constructive tasks and assist with his recovery via sports and other activities,"  he added.

The cooperative movement is made up of more than six million Kenyans. It includes all parts of the country's economy, such as banking, business, farming, and work.
