Dr. Vincent Munyoki Foundation Donates Over 500 Chicks to Empower Women in Kitui

In a remarkable demonstration of leadership, Dr. Vincent Munyoki of the Vincent Munyoki Foundation led Kitui County in celebrating the milestones women have made in the county and rewarded them with free chicks with the aim of empowering them.

Speaking during the event held at Kabati, Dr. Munyoki pledged to continue supporting women and challenged other leaders to support women in all their endeavors.

“As a token of appreciation and acknowledgment for the hard work and dedication of mothers in the community, we have distributed over 500 fully vaccinated 7-week-old chicks at Kabati and Katutu. This initiative will cover all mothers in the region by equipping them with resources that can enhance their economic empowerment and signify nurturing and development,” he said.

Dr. Munyoki reiterated that the women empowerment program will continue as his foundation aims to reach over 50, 000 women within the county.

“As Vincent Munyoki Foundation, we don’t believe in giving out tokens (money), that is why we decided to give out chicks. After one year, these chicks will have multiplied, and our mothers will be able to get one or two chicks and sell them to cater for their personal needs. Our aim is to focus on the future.”

Expressing their appreciation, Felistus Malombe thanked Dr Vincent for the little gesture he had shown not only to her own mother but to over 500 women.

“For over fifty-one years as a woman, I have never seen a day like today. Dr. Vincent has really surprised us. Every woman has gone home with a chick and that shows that he is really minding about women empowerment,” she said as she rallied other youthful leaders to imitate Dr Vincent.
