Girls Say what constitution they want in kenya

250 children, girls, youth and elders directly participated in the discussions on this harmonized draft constitution. They shared with passion what they hope this constitution should contain. Children were particular about protection, medication and education.

The girls want a constitution that looks at their unique needs especially reproductive health, entitlement to inheritance and access to equal opportunities.

The youth being majority in the population feels sidelined as the harmonized draft constitution only has two paragraphs which define them. They want a more presence in the constitution which also gives them at least 5% of all elective and appointive bodies.

The elders and community members were very clear about agriculture. Kenya depends on agriculture for its economy and it’s unfortunate that nothing significant is mentioned in the constitution about it. They want agriculture enshrined in the constitution. Security ranked second and they want every Kenyan security protected by the constitution.

TYSA wants Sports enshrined in the constitution. We are known worldwide as a sporting nation. It is up surd if we do not back this by an inclusion into the constitution We thank all those who contributed to this project. Globalgiving sponsors and KCDF for donating the Harmonized Draft Constitution of Kenya Copies
