Who We Are

Mtoto News is an online platform of news, information and resources on children. We are leveraging on the increasing number of internet users to achieve the goal by making relevant, accurate and timely information on children accessible. Through our online newspaper mtotonews.com we publish stories, information and resources on children twice a day.

 

Our Goal

Our aim is to make significant positive difference in the lives of children by increasing their visibility in political, social, development and cooperate discourse.

WHY

Children constitute 30% of the total world population; the number goes up in developing countries to over 50%.  However children issues are rarely covered in mainstream media and in case they get reported it is never as headline. This has resulted children being left out in important discussions in development, social, political and cooperate word. In addition children are rarely given an opportunity to express themselves.

Mtoto News was established in February, 2017 to fill this gap. Mtoto News mission is to make children visible by ensuring they are not left out in the political, development, social and cooperate discourse.

We are motivated by knowing that if the issues of children are known it will lead to action for change of policy, interventions and programs of children. Hence we will be making significant difference in the lives of children
