TURKANA INNOVATOR WINS CASH REWARD AT PRESIDENTIAL INNOVATION AWARD CHALLENGE 2023

A Volunteer at the Drilling Unit in the Department of Water Services, Loroo Emmanuel Esekon, has won Sh 500,000 at the finals of the Presidential Innovation Challenge Award.
The cash win is the second Award after Esekon received a trophy at the Devolution Heros Competition held in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu County last August 2023.
The Innovator gained global recognition for integrating climate-smart techniques in the making of a new model Turkana traditional stool using recycled waste metallic materials.
This among others has motivated his involvement in mentoring the youth to enroll in vocational skills training for future transformation.
The cash was issued through a cheque at the Kenya Innovation Week at the Edge Convention Centre in Nairobi.
Besides, Esekon is a renowned TVET Ambassador with plans to participate in regional and international innovation challenges.
