Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to invest over Ksh 17 Billion on Women and Girls empowerment

Nairobi April 9, 2018
Melinda gates 2The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has committed to invest over Ksh 17 Billion (Seventeen Billion Kenya Shillings) over the next four years to advance gender equality through women’s economic empowerment.
This revelation came when a delegation from Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, led by the Senior Program Officer responsible for Gender Equality, Ms Erin Hohlfelder, paid a courtesy call to Public Service, Youth and Gender Affairs Cabinet Secretary, Professor Margaret Kobia at her Harambee House office on Monday.
During the meeting, Ms Hohlfelder briefed the Cabinet Secretary on their mission in the country which includes the need to develop an overarching strategy that aims to systematically tackle the barriers that hold women and girls back from living to their full potential.
“Gender equality has always been at the heart of our work, through initiatives on nutrition, health, and agriculture. The goal of our strategy is to empower more women and girls with economic opportunities they need so as to engage as equals in society,” Ms Hohlfelder said.
She noted that the new strategy will build on their existing efforts to strengthen gender data, support grassroots women’s movements and promote accountability for the SDGs.
In her remarks, CS Kobia hailed the Foundation for its charitable work across Africa, and more so in the country, adding that there is need to explore wider engagement for the benefit of the vulnerable segment of the society.
The CS told the delegation that the Ministry she is in charge of is creating space where Kenyan youth can connect to make a difference in our communities, adding that the Ministry is, at the same time, coordinating our activities to align them with the President’s Big Four agenda.
During the visit, Ms Hohlfelder was accompanied by the Program Officer in charge of Global Policy and Advocacy, Ms Caitlin Feurey and a Mr. Sambauru Wa-Shiko.
