MYTO Vision Statement
We envision a community in which youth, women and children are able to facilitate their own development. To transform youths from uncalled for social interaction to capable youths who can be a resource to society.
In 2004, Mathare was one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in Nairobi. According to Mathare residents, there were frequent muggings, rapes, and drug deals. Mathare resident Ben Ochieng decided to start a youth group to do development work in the community after seeing TV documentaries about youth groups starting development projects in other parts of Kenya. Together with Elizabeth Otieno and Okidi Onesmus, he founded the Mathare Youth Talented Organization (MYTO) on May 2 nd, 2004. Their mission statement is "to transform youths from uncalled for social interaction to capable youths who can be a resource to society."
