Achievements

Main Achievements

Since its formation, MUMYO has played a key role in sensitizing and inspiring the young men and women to lead development in their communities with emphasis on the marginalized groups. A good number of youths have had training opportunities through seminars, workshops and exchange visits and have been able to exhibit whatever knowledge, skills, and experiences acquired to enable other members and the community in general 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, 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.
