The program was initiated by the state department of housing and urban development upon the outbreak of the deadly pandemic Coronavirus it was unveiled as a local economic recovery initiative and a form of social protection to assist youths and vulnerable families in the various slum.
Many youths who had lost jobs were later absorbed in the program that was set to end on 4th March 2021, however, the steering committee of the program has announced that, as President Uhuru had promised, the program will now be extended.
