World Vision Kenya Deepens Engagement with Elgeyo Marakwet County

The County Government of Elgeyo Marakwet on Monday, June 27, 2022, signed a partnership framework agreement with World Vision Kenya to further deepen development ties with the Non-Governmental Organization.

The agreement will now encompass all County Departments and will provide a clear framework of engagement for the development of all sectors in the County.

It will also facilitate joint fundraising efforts, planning and implementation of projects and programs as well as evaluation and monitoring.

 

In the past, we used to do this separately. But we realised we can achieve much more if we do them jointly for mutual benefit and success,” said World Vision Operations Director Miriam Mbembe.

She said the agreement will make it easy for World Vision to channel support from its donors to the County.

For instance, we have seen the need to carry out a school feeding programme in this County because in some areas children go to school hungry. From the funding we receive, we should be able to channel some resources for joint implementation,” Mbembe said.

Elgeyo Marakwet Governor Eng. Alex Tolgos who signed the agreement said the document provided a formal engagement with World Vision to further entrench the existing partnership.

With this formal agreement, we at the County will also increase our resource mobilization efforts so that we try and match the resources you provide us,” he said.

Tolgos directed County departments to cooperate with World Vision as they undertake analysis of areas for support.

The World Vision team included the North Rift Regional Manager Elijah Chiwe and Elgeyo Marakwet Representative Jacklyn Kurui.

Present during the event were County Secretary Paul Chemmuttut, County Executive Committee Member (CECM) Abraham Barsosio, and County Chief Officers among other County staff.
