GOOD MORNING...

TODAY MARKS A NEW BEGINNING AS THE FUND LOOKS ON TO THE FUTURE THROUGH THE REVIEW OF ITS STRATEGIC PLAN IN CONSULTATION WITH STAKEHOLDERS.

THE SUCCESS OF THE FUND IN ACHIEVING WOMEN EMPOWERMENT IS PLAINLY VISIBLE.

IN THE LAST 8 YEARS THE GROWTH OF THE NUMBER OF BENEFICIARIES IMPACTED BY THE FUND FROM A FEW HUNDRED IN THE ONSET TO 1,080,743 WITH DISBURSEMENTS OF KSHS. 6.48 BILLION THROUGHOUT KENYA IS NOT A MEAN FEAT.

IN THE CURRENT FINANCIAL YEAR, THE FUND HAS BEEN ALLOCATED EXCHEQUER FUNDING OF KSH.539 MILLION. THE JUBILEE GOVERNMENT IS COMMITTED TO INCREASING THE EXCHEQUER SUPPORT GIVEN RELEVANT JUSTIFICATION BY THE FUND

WE RECOGNIZE THE ROLE OF THE CABINET SECRETARY TOWARDS ACHIEVING WOMEN EMPOWEREMENT BY SUPPORTING THE FUND’S INITIATIVES.

TODAY WE ARE HERE TO VALIDATE THE STRATEGIC PLAN 2013-2017.THE PURPOSE OF THIS PLAN IS TO PROVIDE STRATEGIC DIRECTION TO THE FUND FOR ITS OPERATIONS OVER THE NEXT FIVE YEARS. IT SPELLS OUT HOW RESOURCES SHOULD BE UTILIZED IN THE MOST EFFECTIVE AND EFFICIENT MANNER TO REALIZE THE VISION, MISSION AND MANDATE OF FUND. THE STRATEGIC PLAN WILL ALSO PROVIDE A FRAMEWORK FOR RESOURCE MOBILIZATION FROM GOVERNMENT AND OTHER DEVELOPMENT PARTNERS IN ORDER FOR THE FUND TO ACHIEVE ITS STRATEGIC GOALS.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO A FRUITFUL ENGAGEMENT THAT WILL PROVIDE USEFUL FEEDBACK TO ENRICH THE PLAN.
