CREP Programme initially started as a relief and rehabilitation C. B.O. during the ethnic clashes that characterized Kenya in 1992 and 1993 at the onset of multiparty politics. Originally going by the name Muhoroni Central Development Project (M.C.D.P), the organization was mainly involved in the provision of relief items and counseling the communities affected and displaced by the clashes.
After working with the affected communities for a short while, the demand for these developmental interventions spread beyond the affected people and beyond the initial Muhoroni boundary, and the organization was eventually registered as a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) in march 1997 to facilitate the spread of its activities to these new areas.
