Kamroth Youth Association on 24th June ran a voluntary cleaning work at Audo markert in Homabay County in a bid to give back to the society.

The activity which took place at kamroth location, kakelo kokwanyo ward in Kabondo Constituency has been applauded by many as a bold move in ensuring youths give back to the society.

The Youths met at 2pm at a set location where they proceeded with the work with the leadership of their chairperson Austine Oloo, a student at a local institution. "The turn out was good and we did several things which included slashing around the market and cutting down bushes that were within and around the market." Said the chairperson.

With permission from the market management and the Assistant Chief's office, the youths reported no disturbances in achieving their target.

However the youths decry lack of support from individuals and the local government as they had minimal tools and protective gears to carry out the work.

"The major setback we had was lack of enough protective gears to undertake the work. Otherwise we are happy it was a success." Continued the chairperson.

"We are trying to get the youths engaged during this holiday in better things that can help them as individuals or the community at large." Oloo Speaks on the main agenda of the Association.

The Association has more Upcoming projects including one scheduled for next Wednesday at Omiro Dispensary for a cleaning objective.

"Currently we still haven't reached the number of volunteers we are aiming at but we are mobilising more youths to join us in the movement. We have several projects like youth empowerment forums where we discuss what we pass through as youths, and some other projects like tree planting among others." Oloo Finishes.

Youth forums in Homabay county have been a thing in the past. Many have come up, but most have failed. Hopefully Kamroth Youth Association will get the perfect direction in achieving their best and giving back to the society
