CREP Programme initially started as a relief and rehabilitation C. B.O. during the ethnic clashes that characterised 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 me Muhoroni Central Development Project
(M.C.D.P), the organization was mainly involved in provision of relief items and counselling 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 a NonGovernmental Organization (NGO) in march 1997 to facilitate the spread of its activities to these new areas.
The organization has since then increased its development initiatives to cover Food Security, Environmental Rehabilitation and Conservation including promoting use of renewable energy, HIV & AIDS, Water and sanitation, Micro-Enterprise and development, Gender equality and equity, floods disaster mitigation and Policy advocacy.
Oxfam GB, the Tudor Trust and FARM AFRICA, KENFAB through KENDBIP, Danish Family Planning Association and Sustainable Energy, CHRISTIAN AID have been the main donors supporting CREP Programme in its development initiatives and in setting up a community resource centre at its headquarters in Awasi.
