About Us

Dream Achievers Youth Organization (DAYO) is a National Youth Led Non Governmental Organization (NGO) Registered under the NGOs Co-ordination Board with a Registration Number: OP.218/051/21-479/12560 based in Mombasa Kenya. DAYO's key interventions have been capacity strengthening for young people on key thematic concerns, community engagement and empowerment, health financing, media engagement, livelihoods and entrepreneurship incubation and policy advocacy for youth programming. DAYO also works with socially excluded groups including persons with disabilities, sexual and gender minorities and young people.


DAYO started as a theatre group in 2005 by 7 young persons in Kisauni Constituency of Mombasa County. This group used theatre approach to sensitize the community on health issues facing young people. The theatre group had a fluid leadership committee consisting of a Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and theatre/drama trainer while other members constituted the group as members. In 2009 the group was registered as a Community Based Organization (CBO) to advance its mandate through the support from well-wishers in the community that constituted the organizational Advisory Board. In 2021, DAYO developed a Board Charter defining its roles and responsibilities that has guided review and development of organizational policies and current upgrade of organizational mandate as a Non Governmental Organization (NGO) in 2022
