Karurumo

Car • roo • roo • mo

Located near Mount Kenya, Karurumo is a hilly area along the highlands of the Eastern region of Kenya. Here mild temperatures in the seventies and eighties allow for beautiful luscious mango trees to grow.

As part of the Embu tribe, many women in the cooperative begin each morning with prayers to the god of Mount Kenya, “mwene nyaga.” They pray he will protect them and make them prosperous. Mangoes here are a seen as a source of richness, especially at the family level, given it is the only cash crop they have on their property. Here you will find Kimbere spoken more than Swahili or English.
