Origin of the Kenya Anglican Youth Organisation
The Kenya Anglican Youth Organization was started in the year 1962 by the then Bishop of Mt. Kenya Diocese. The Late Obadiah Kariuki. He started with aim of bringing young people to the Church of Christ. He had a great vision for the young people and wanted a forum where they could be empowered in matters of faith and equipped to soldiers of Christ. This department serves young people aged 15years and above. In the year 1964 the Bishop launched A.Y.O at St. Paul Mother church Kabete and a youth committee commissioned. In the consequent synod all other Bishops agreed to start A.Y.O. in their dioceses. The name was changed from A.Y.O to K.A.Y.O to cover the entire country.
