Since its formation, MUMYO has played a key role in sensitizing and inspiring the youth to lead development in their communities with emphasis on the marginalized groups. Many youths gained useful experiences and skills in collaboration with other stakeholders. Some who started as orphans are now professionals and those who dropped out of school early got refers to life skills and other training programs. Over 600 youths, from Mukono, Kayunga and Buikwe Districts, have had training opportunities, in business and leadship skills, group dynamics, through seminars, workshops and exchange visits. They have also exhibited whatever knowledge, skills and experiences acquired to enable the other people to learn from them. Other achievements include;
- Mobilizing the youth and adults towards HIV/AIDs awareness, counselling and testing through Linked Response Project, Community Health AIDS Initiative (CHAI) Project and in partnership with St. Francis Naggalama Hospital.
- Conducted Functional Adult Literacy (FAL) classes in Naggalama, Kimeyedde and Kasawo sub-counties in Mukono District, with support from the Gender office-Mukono District. Over 256 adults benefited.
- Acquisition of land where the organization headquarters are located
- Promotion of sustainable utilization and management of environmental resources and proper waste disposal, though education and awareness.
All these achievements were reached with the help of our partners and supporters, including St. Francis Naggalama Hospital, We Effect, joint support from the European Union, German Cooperation and GIZ, and many others. We wish to take this opportunity to pass a vote of thanks to all our supporters, volunteers and partners for providing us with the ability to continue work on the projects being undertaken. Without your strong support we would not be able to offer services to the under privileged social groups, the youth, children and women within the greater Mukono Region.
