The Ministry of Agriculture is gearing up towards the launch and implementation of the 4K-(Agricultural) Clubs across all schools in the country following an approval by the Cabinet on Thursday.

In a dispatch to newsrooms, the Cabinet approved the revival of yester years popular 4-k clubs saying this will interest more children in Agriculture and usher in techno-savvy Agriculture players.

4K stands for Kuungana, Kufanya, Kusaidia Kenya loosely translated as coming together, to act, in order to help Kenya.

The clubs, which died in the early 1990s, engaged in sustainable agriculture through hands-on activities in the schools’ demonstration gardens.  Over the last two decades there have been attempts to revive the clubs at primary school levels but without a national steering plan.

The Chief Administrative Secretary in the Agriculture Ministry Anne Nyaga, who will be spearheading the programme under the stewardship of CS Peter Munya, welcomed the reintroduction of the 4K clubs saying it will see to it that all children have access to knowledge of agriculture.
