The DISC Initiatives is a program run through the Donyo community, in collaboration Charles Ochieng founded in 2008 as a youth self-help project. Its establishment was founded on the basis of responding to the community and youth unemployment culture rampant. The DISC Initiatives has slowly developed and evolved in search of community empowerment and transformation in Donyo and other neighbouring communities, through strategic partnerships with other organisations that share our visions and aspirations.
