President Uhuru Kenyatta on Wednesday donated a bus to Hafsa Bint Siirin Centre in Garissa County.
The representatives from the institution traveled to State House to collect the vehicle.
In his speech, Uhuru asked women to take part in matters of development. The head of state underscored the needs of women to support the government in the fight to transform the economy before he completes his term in power.
The president maintained that the prosperity, peace, and stability of the nation depends on all Kenyans.
"Hafsa Bint Siirin Centre is an Islamic women educational and empowerment institution based in Garissa town. The center provides education and empowerment to women, orphans, vulnerable girls, persons with disability and senior citizens," State House said.
Uhuru further said that he is ready to support women and other groups to ensure that they achieve their objectives, adding that his government has good plans for them.
"President Uhuru Kenyatta has challenged Kenyan women to take the lead in nation-building saying women, just like their male counterparts, have the potential to steer the country’s development agenda," State House tweeted.
The institution has been one of the centres of excellence for senior citizens, orphans and vulnerable girls among different groups.
