Mukono Multi-purpose Youth Organisation (MUMYO) is a Non-Profit Organization founded in 1992 to promote the rights and well- being of the young men and women, especially in the rural areas. It was formed by a group of seven people who found it necessary to form an organization that would unite the youth and facilitate the exchange of views, information and experiences for social transformation and economic development.
The young people present an opportunity for a sustained effort to participate in the country’s development process because they possess greater energy, work force and potential. We believe that engaging the youth and addressing their needs is critical to our organization mission to ending poverty and empowering them to take charge of their destiny and become forces of social change. There is also need to address the specific and adverse needs of the young people, such as, access to information and resources to support sustainable rural development initiatives for self-reliance.
