Mathare Community Education and Development Organization (MCEDO) is a Community Based Organization operating in the heart of Mathare slum, the second largest slum in Kenya. The Not-For-Profit organization MCEDO, which was founded in 2000 and registered formally in 2001, runs a community school called MCEDO-Beijing School which caters for the needs of orphans and the vulnerable children. The projects undertaken in this organization include: education, talent promotion i.e. soccer (boys & girls), performing arts, theatre, art gallery among others.
The volunteer run community based organization (CBO) was formed in response to the plight of orphans and the vulnerable children (OVCs). The key areas included:
• HIV & Aids awareness
• environmental conservation
Through successful implementation of various community education and development based programmes, the CBO has been credited by the non-residents and residents for its immense contribution in improving the welfare of hundreds of young people in the area through tailor-made programmes. Its primary beneficiaries have been mainly the highly disadvantaged children and youth in the slum.
• Scholarships to high school
• Feeding programme
• After school programme targeting youths
