Machakos Governor Wavinya Ndeti on Thursday launched a free milk programme for all public Early Childhood Education (ECDE) centers across the county.

Speaking during the launch at Kyemutheke Primary School, Mavoko sub-county, Ndeti termed the programme as a milestone which will increase enrollment, boost nutrition among children as well as improve their health and general wellbeing.

The Governor noted that the children will receive the milk twice per week.

“The programme dubbed ‘Maziwa ya Mama’ with the slogan ‘Feeding the Future’ will enhance children’s nutrition at the basic education level for better learning experience,” she said.

Besides the health and nutrition benefits, Ndeti noted that the programme is expected to boost the earnings of dairy farmers who will supply the milk.

“This opportunity for our farmers is a step towards the realization of my ‘Chakula Mezani, Pesa Mfukoni’ development agenda,” she said.
