As Face of Kenya UK 2013, I beleive that young people are the voice of the world. This is the same as our beloved country kenya. We are the voice. The Kenyan youth here in the UK as well as back in Kenya can reach out to the outside world better than anyone else. Young people are the core of the society, we are the tomorrow people. We possess a lot of skills and ideas but we need help and support from the government to reach our potential.
The Kenyan youth who are now citizens by dual nationality needs our kenyan government. We face a lot of challenges and many of the diaspora youth have lost identity The government need to sponsor cultural events, promote artistic exhibition of talents that showcases Kenyan culture here in the UK. This will instil a sense of belonging and engagement from an early age.
I urge the government to enhance the youth fund schemes and this will improve their status of living hence help improve the economy. The Kenyan youth here in the uk are very motivated and hardworking and they form a huge pool of labour, The Goverment should also consider us in their planning Vision 2030.
How can the goverment work with graduates from UK universities or just Kenyans studying Abroad? Comment Below.
