Mukuru Youth Initiative (MuYI), is a community-based organization founded by the youth of Mukuru informal settlement. The group is composed of youths from the wider Mukuru slums who came together to empower one another to be able to reduce the rate of crime, drug abuse, early girl child pregnancy and to promote peaceful coexistence amongst community members hence promoting good governance and positive side of the community.

MuYI was born out of a organizing of the Mukuru Awards initiated in 2013 in response to lack of proper platform for youths to showcase and address the issues affecting the community. Mukuru Awards operating on a hanging surface gave birth to Mukuru Youth Initiative which became operational in September 2015 in order to have a long-term platform to have a long term solution and have a day to day operation and engagement with the youths.
