Julius Ngalyuka Nzau | Melvine C. Lilechi [5] | Francis M. Muchoki [2]

Abstract: This article focuses on the historical development of Catholic Relief Services (CRS) in Kenya. CRS has been involved in many development activities throughout the country since 1965. Some of these activities, it partnered with donor agencies to see fruition of its programmes. CRS has been involved immensely in peace building especially in areas of North Eastern. There were challenges experienced by CRS in its undertaking as it relies mostly on donor funds. Very little support comes from the citizens and the government of Kenya. The Catholic Scholarship Programme for Kenya (CSPK) is mostly known to religious persons and very few people have benefitted from the programme. Also, very little support is given to CSPK from the local citizens as all resources comes from the donor abroad. All in all, CRS and CSPK have provided vital services which the government has not been able to provide.
