Create ministry for the FAMILY!
Do you know that there is a family policy that has been lying on the shelves of the Ministry of Labour, Social Services, and Security?
Yes, you heard right, a family policy that was drafted by a dedicated team has been lying on the shelves of the Ministry for close to five years now.
We have followed up with the ministry but you could tell that the policy has not been their priority, of course, they had!
It is time Kenya stopped bundling the family with other Ministries yet as per the CoK of 2010, the Family is the fundamental unit of society.
The natural family is under heavy attack right now, we have to defend, protect and promote it and this will demand a dedicated department.
It was very disappointing when the president of the republic of Kenya His Excellency William Samoei Ruto read all the other ministries he has created and failed to name a ministry of the family.
We have to stand and say enough is enough, we demand that the family be prioritized in Kenya and be given the importance it deserves.
Many global countries have a dedicated ministry of the family and from the policies, they have developed, you can see good results. For example, Hungary rewards every homestead that gives birth to a new child and has a sustainable policy to sustain this.
Sign this petition now, and demand that the president of Kenya creates a ministry for the family in Kenya.
