Information about the local organization

Mukuru Promotion Centre (MPC) believes that Education is one of the most important building blocks for the healthy development of any society. It is absolutely essential for poorer communities, since education empowers people with skills for employment, and a voice to articulate their needs to Governments and service providers. MPC runs four primary schools for over 5,000 children, a secondary school, a rehabilitation centre for up to 60 street boys, a medical clinic with a HIV/AIDS testing centre attached, a community based health care program, a skills training centre for over 100 students, and a sponsorship programme to secondary schools for more than 200 children. MPC in concert with other partners acknowledge that Kenya’s vulnerable youth need careful attention to assist them to become responsible citizens who can play a productive role in society. MPC also aspires to establish and operate holistic and sustainable education, health and social development programs which will address the needs of the most vulnerable groups in the community.
