Mukuru Slums Development Project (MSDP) is a registered NGO operating within Mukuru slums and the adjoining areas. It intervenes through various initiatives and programmes in assisting poor and vulnerable residents, in improving and empowering their lifestyles. MSDP programmes have been in operation for more than 10 years now.
Principle Objective The main objective of MSDP is to provide holistic and integrated care with the view of reducing poverty amongst the inhabitants of Mukuru slums and other informal settlements, by focusing on the basic physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual well being.
As an organization MSDP believes in holistic development of the human person.
