Since its inception Radio Domus Mariae has strived to serve the people of Ngong and its environs that
are mostly occupied by poor Kenyans who strive to make ends meet. These areas are characterized by incidences of tribal, political, religious, social and economic discrimination. Incidences of insecurity have also been on the rise due to the fact that most youths are unemployed and engage in anti-social behaviors such as drug and alcohol abuse.
The vision of Radio Domus is to help in the empowerment of the community of Kajiado North and the environs through professionally done and interactive radio programs. The youthful journalists working at the station as volunteers’ presenters, reporters and DJs have dedicated their time to empower, educate and entertain the community.
