She said this is a commitment shared by the African Union and First Ladies across the continent.

According to the First Lady, education will pave the way for economic empowerment and ultimately help minimize the outdated practices that expose families to cyclic poverty, and gender-based violence among other vices.

Mama Rachel Ruto urged the First Ladies present to be intentional in educating children and giving them access to health services.

The First Lady further announced her acceptance to be the Voice of the Children of Kenya, where she will be championing the welfare of children with a key focus on child trafficking, abandonment, and abuse.
