In 2016, MEDO launched its Young Women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) programme. The programme aims to inspire and empower young women to pursue careers in STEM. The programme has been a success, with over 1,000 young women participating in the programme since its launch.

MEDO is a leading organization in the field of economic development in South Africa, and is committed to helping South Africa achieve its economic potential.

In 2022, MEDO was appointed by UNICEF to implement challenges relating the the UN SDGs.
