Importance Of Kazi Kwa Vijana Project

Am Leah Amboke from Nairobi am about to narrate a story about''kazi kwa vijana project.''This came up in the year 2009 which was introduced by the government so as to help young people to achieve their dreams.The project was good only that the leaders were corrupt because they didn't give out the amount that was signed by the government.I had an opportunity to be one of the workers whereby we suffered so much due to delay in payments.We were payed after a donation 2-3 months That when we got the first months salary.I thank God since up to now the government has improvised on the project. People who are still working earn a bitter salary and also on time and it has also changed young peoples lives.The have also build up in their jobless have acquired opportunities and they have also build up in their communities we can see several projects going on such as irrigation dams are constructed to provide water in arid areas to help for food production and others.
