MYJ is a non-profit, multidisciplinary organization with a passion for innovation in working with and for communities towards meaningful development.
In recent years, the organization has successfully established a strong reputation for its committment towards its work among the various parties with which it has collaborated, including community members, local government, central government, and development partners. “Maendeleo ya Jamii” means “Community Development” in Kiswahili, without the often loaded, misunderstood and or misinterpreted terms “community” and “development”.
Since its establishment in 2010, MYJ has worked on a number of projects. Many of these projects have involved investigating and addressing issues affecting communities, the environment, and resources. Through these projects MYJ has collaborated with a wide range of organizations and individuals.
