Njarange Area Project’s offices are in Embu, in eastern Kenya.
Njarange Area Project Kenya (NAPK) is a rural development agency providing support and advice to local self-help groups in Mbeere, a district within Embu county. It was registered with the Kenyan government in 1999. Mbeere is an isolated semi-arid district. 65% of the population of Mbeere live on less than £1 per day.
NAPK has five community programmes: education and population; agriculture, water and the environment; community health; welfare and relief; and micro-finance. PCAT’s annual grant has averaged about £12,000 over the last ten years helping to support these initiatives. The agency has a small staff team based in Embu, supporting seven community based self-help groups, each of whom are represented through the Community Development Advisory Council. NAPK also works closely with local government agencies, other development agencies and Anglican Development Services (Mount Kenya East).
