The Ministry of Labour and Social Protection just released a whopping Sh. 8.35 billion to support the beneficiaries of the Inua Jamii programme. The Cabinet Secretary (CS) for Labour and Social Protection, Florence Bore, spilled the announced about another cash splash. A cool Sh. 11.2 million is on its way for the Nutrition Improvement through Cash and Health Education (NICHE) programme.
So, what’s the deal with the Inua Jamii beneficiaries? Well, they’re in for a treat! Each one of them will receive a sweet Sh. 8,000 for the payment cycle covering March-April and May-June 2023. It’s like a cash infusion to bring a smile to their faces.
And where’s all this money hiding? It’s making its way to Kenya Commercial Bank, National Bank, and Kenya Women Microfinance Bank. They’re like the guardians of these funds, ensuring they reach the right hands.
Now, this is not the first rodeo for the Inua Jamii programme. It’s like a well-oiled machine, promising a second tranche right after the recent November-December 2022 and January-February 2023 payment. Talk about staying true to their word!
So, who’s on the receiving end of this financial goodness? Brace yourselves – it’s a staggering 1,042,854 regular Inua Jamii beneficiaries and an additional 5,607 NICHE beneficiaries. That’s a whole lot of people getting a well-deserved boost!
CS Bore knows the importance of these social protection programmes. They’re like life rafts, rescuing the most vulnerable from the clutches of poverty and deprivation. The government is on a mission to ensure these folks get a chance to improve their livelihoods and leap out of poverty. It’s like giving them wings to soar!
Base Titanium is a big deal, folks. They’re producing ilmenite, rutile, and zircon – critical minerals that pack a punch in the local and national economy. It’s like a goldmine, only with shiny rocks instead of gold!
During the tour, CS Bore witnessed something extraordinary. Base Titanium is going green! They’re partnering with the local community and Kilifi-based Pwani University to grow food in their rehabilitation areas. It’s like a garden of hope, nurturing both the land and the people.
Safety first, my friends! Base Titanium takes workplace safety seriously, like a mama bear protecting her cubs. They train their workers proactively, ensuring accidents take a backseat.
But the fun didn’t stop there – they joined forces to plant a whopping 3,055 trees. Talk about giving back to Mother Nature! It’s all in line with the national government’s ambitious plan to plant 5 billion trees in the next 5 years.
