Early childhood, which spans the period up to 8 years of age, is critical for cognitive, social, emotional and physical development. During these years, a child’s newly developing brain is highly plastic and responsive to change as billions of integrated neural circuits are established through the interaction of genetics, environment and experience. Optimal brain development requires a stimulating environment, adequate nutrients and social interaction with attentive caregivers. Unsafe conditions, negative interactions and lack of educational opportunities during these early years can lead to irreversible outcomes, which can affect a child’s potential for the remainder of his or her life Good nutrition plays a crucial role during formative years when there is rapid brain development in children. My administration is cognisant of this and we have an active school feeding programme in our Early Childhood Education Centres (ECDEs).


Today, I flagged off 5,500 bags of fortified porridge flour to 503 stand alone ECDEs. The remaining, which are Integrated to Primary Schools, will receive their batch in the next three weeks.


The flour is highly nutritive and is blended with 21 minerals to help curb malnutrition. This programme has been instrumental in driving my agenda for education with ECDEs registering a record high in enrollment, retention and transition rates.
Last month, my Government recruited 710 ECDE teachers adding to the 829 already in the service

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and The Kenya Red Cross Society team paid a courtesy call to the county during their joint supervision visit of the Community Epidemic and Pandemic Preparedness Program (CP3) at Alale Ward in Pokot North sub county.


The team was received by the acting County Secretary, Eng. John Karamunya who welcomed them and acknowledged their long time support in the county.

Governor Prof. John Lonyangapuo flagged off 4, 000 bags of emergency livestock feeds (range cubes) as a response to areas hardly hit by drought in West Pokot County.
The programme, implemented by the County Government in partnership with Food Agriculture Organization (FAO), will benefit 1,200 households who were competitively selected and verified from Pokot Central and Pokot North sub counties.


Additionally, 64, 590 goats, 14, 000 sheep and 6, 500 cattle have been vaccinated under the same programme. All these will go a long way in cushioning livestock farmers against the severe effects of drought witnessed.
