Caritas Maralal is the development arm of the Catholic Diocese of Maralal. For over 15 years, we have implemented projects aimed at enabling communities to create solutions that meet their local development challenges.  Our overall goal is to increase resilience at the individual and community level. In helping improve the lives of the communities we serve, Caritas Maralal works in the following areas: Emergency Response and Disaster management, Education, Food Security, Peacebuilding & conflict transformation, Advocacy, Governance, Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), Health and Nutrition, Human rights and Gender.
