In alignment with H.E. Governor Susan Kihika’s Affordable Housing Manifesto, the County Government of Nakuru is set to elevate its efforts in training and sensitizing stakeholders within the affordable housing sector. The goal is to equip them with the necessary skills, facilitating easier access to affordable housing options.
Kagoto Vocational Training Centre, in collaboration with the County’s Directorate of Housing and Urban Development, is spearheading a two-day training and sensitization initiative on producing stabilized soil blocks. This initiative, situated in Kiamaina Ward of Bahati Sub-county, represents a step forward in realizing the governor’s vision for affordable housing.
Coordinated by Principal Mr. Malachi Manase of Kagoto VTC, the training targets both students within the institution and community members from the surrounding areas. The initiative, which focuses on making stabilized soil blocks, will extend to all eleven ABMT (Affordable Building Materials and Technologies) Demonstration Centres across Nakuru County.
The Department of Land, Physical Planning, Housing, and Urban Development is actively involved in the training, contributing valuable expertise to the initiative. This collaborative effort underscores the county’s commitment to empowering its residents with the knowledge and skills needed to enhance access to affordable housing solutions.
