Message From H.E the Governor

"As Governor, I see Siaya leading the way and providing an example to other counties. I want to use my platform nationally on the Council of Governors to ensure that all children in Kenya develop to their full potential."
H.E. Cornel Rasanga Amoth,
Governor, Siaya

Message from H.E Rosella Rasanga

"Early pregnancies and related future health complications are attributed to absence of proper early childhood development programs. Universal access to early childhood development is one of the Governor's campaign flagships project thereby making the project timely. Siaya County has been known as a Land of Heroes since time immemorial and this project will ensure we continuously produce Heroes into the future."
H.E Rosella Rasanga
Patron, ECD Nurturing Care Siaya County, Siaya First Lady

Message From RMNCAH Coordinator

“At the Ministry of Health, we know that platforms for the delivery of nurturing care already exist within health facilities. This is why we believe that health system integration is so critical. Not only does integration help us reach young children as early as possible, it is cost effective, it enhances quality, it reduces missed opportunities, and it will enable us to scale up nurturing care services faster."
Dr. Elizabeth Omondi,
RMNCAH Coordinator & ECD focal person, 
Siaya County
