kajiado

The ACK Diocese of Kajiado was created in January 1993 on the sub-division of the Diocese of Nairobi. It was designated as a "missionary Diocese" because it is largely underdeveloped. The Diocese lies south of the capital Nairobi towards the Tanzanian border. Mt. Kilimanjaro (19,340ft) lies just across the southern border of the Diocese.

Although the Diocese is in Maasai land, members of many other communities such as Kikuyu, Kamba and Luo live in the area. It is largely rural (technically semi-arid) with few resources. Agriculture is the main occupation.
