Guided by the above core objectives, the TPRC at Karibangi South PCEA has been what can be termed as “Rapid Response Team” according to what the issue at hand may require.
- Since it inception, civic education has been one of the areas that JPRC has adequately responded to during the past two General elections (2002 2007),and also during the process of preparing the new constitution which was promulgated last year (2010). This has involved inviting to Kariobangi South PCEA church prominent lawyers, provincial administration civic leaders to have a one on one talk with the congregation.
- The JPRC has also been in the forefront on the campaign on preservation of habitable environment. These have been carried out through and during the JPRC annual day where the members participate in clean – up exercises within and around the church compound, by planting trees and flowers (beautification).The Landmark success was the removal of the garbage at the entrance to the church (next to the council market) which was an eye sore on 20th May, 2006.
When Kenyans held this General Election in December 2007, the presidential results were disputed. This led to violent, ethical classes in some parts of the country leading to deaths and displacements of families from their farms (settlements). This resulted to what is now being referred to as IDPS.The JPRC (Kariobangi South PCEA) saw the plight of those IDPs and resolved to assist the IDPs camped at Ruringu Stadium. On ……………….. the JPRC went to Ruringu – Nyeri with cloths and foodstuff to distribute to the IDPs camped there.
This took place between 19th – 24th February 2010. The mission was organized by Nairobi East Presbytery JPRC. The main objective of the visit was to learn first hand the challenges faced by Rwanda people during and after the April, 1994 genocide.
