Cohort B are currently working and they will be finishing on Tuesday next week.

In its first phase, the program absorbed at least 31,689 Kenyans in eight counties while the second phase which was launched in July 2020 was expected to absorb some 270,000 youths.

The extension comes at a time when youths are calling for an additional time because the program had become their main source of income.

The government came up with the program to help youths deal with the effects of the covid-19 pandemic.

The first phase focused on informal settlements in the counties of Nairobi, Mombasa, Kiambu, Nakuru, Kisumu, Kilifi, Kwale, and Mandera.
