Mathare Community Outreach(MCO) is a grassroot interdenominational community development initiative dedicated to improving the lives of the disenfranchised children and their families in Mathare Valley slums.It started in 1994 as a feeding programme where children were fed on a cup of porridge a day following increased malnutrition and related diseases among the children.The realization of other needs such as inaccessibility to education,increased poverty,high prevalence of HIV/AIDS and thus increased numbers of orphans has necessitated the expansion of the initiative to include other programmes.MCO currently ministers to over 1500 children among them over 380 orphans. The high level of poverty in the slum (poverty level estimated to be between 75 to 80% against a national average of 41.7%) puts basic education beyond the reach of many families. This has contributed to high illeteracy and drop out levels in primary schools.
