Kenya’s youth have remained at the periphery of the country’s affairs for decades since independence and their needs and aspirations have not been accorded due recognition. The youth have not been adequately engaged in the designing, lanning and implementation of programmes and policies that affect not only them but also the country at large, and as a result, their knowledge, skills and energy has been underutilized. Governments around the world are increasingly supporting youth ministries, youth policies and youth programmes, and there seems to be greater appreciation that young people are the future of their country’s development.
