The initiative to create MCDO came in 2003 from a few dedicated members of already existing community based organisation, Amajambere Iwacu Community Camp. At that time there were several community initiatives, focusing on specific development issues, working independently of each other within Gisozi parish. The existing disorganization created a need for coordinating entity amongst the different development programs was dire. These dedicated members presented their position and introduced an umbrella organisation MCDO. The organisation purpose being to educate, facilitate and coordinate the member projects.
