Full description:MYTO is a community-based organization in Mathare, an informal settlement near Nairobi, Kenya. MYTO's mission statement is �€�to transform youths from uncalled for social interaction to capable youths who can be a resource to society.�€� MYTO's members are Mathare residents who are dedicated to engaging Mathare's youth in community development activities
Additional info:We primarily need help working with children at our informal school (for orphans and children whose parents cannot afford to send them to the state-run schools). Please visit the website to see all the other projects and programs volunteers can be involved with. This is a completely grass-roots, entirely volunteer created and run organisation, so any help and resources are gratefully accepted.
