Kenya like most African countries is multi-ethnic and is perceived to be one of the most ethnically fragmented societies in Africa. Notably, there is no statistical evidence to confirm the exact number of ethnic groups in Kenya, as for decades the total number of ethnic groups in Kenya stood at 42 based on the census that was conducted in 1969. The 2009 Census found that there were more than 42 ethnic groups in the country. In particular, the 2009 population census listed no less than 111 ethnic groups in Kenya up from 42 in 1969, which is partly attributed to the success of the struggles by some of the historically marginalized communities, to be officially recognized by the state.

The county government on the other hand is tasked with functions of ‘Pre-primary education (ECDE), village polytechnics, home craft centers, and childcare facilities’ as per Article 9 of the Fourth

The quest for youth participation in governance, politics, and other developmental processes is an increasing global concern. To this end, the UN General Assembly adopted the World Programme of Action for Youth to the year 2000 and beyond to advance the youth agenda in matters of governance. This framework calls for full and effective participation of the youth in the decision-making spaces within its priority areas. Similarly, in 2003, the UN General Assembly demonstrated Its commitment to youth participation through the issuance of Resolution No. 58/133 (policies and programmes involving youth), which requires upon all Member States, United Nations bodies, Specialized Agencies, Regional Commissions, and Intergovernmental and Nongovernmental Organizations concerned to make every possible effort to implement cross-sectoral policies relevant to the youth. Regionally, Article 11 of the African Youth Charter adopted by the African Union was dedicated to the participation of young people in all spheres of society.
