Over the past year my administration through the Department of Children and Education has been working to transform and empower the community of Mombasa from the grassroots. This transformation seeks to establish a safe city for every child and develop our human capital in order to spur the desired economic growth. Our intention is that through this mission we will increase wealth within our community, profit for enterprise, and jobs for our workforce.
This strategic plan will be achieved under the leadership of the Office of the Executive Secretary responsible for Children within the County. Through our strategic policy framework Dignified Care, we aim to strengthen the service delivery system for children and young people, so that it is more comprehensive, accessible, effective and dignifying. These systems will enable every child to develop to their full potential through the joint commissioning of service providers, the empowerment of families and the enablement of the community. The service will foster optimal childhood development in order to increase each child’s educational outcome and success in later life.
