AFRICA (Centrally Governed House)
The year 1991 was eventful for the congregation of the Apostolic Carmel, as it launched its mission in East Africa-Kenya. Sister Mariella, the former Superior General accepted the pressing invitation of Msgr. Nicodemus Kirigma , the Archbishop of Nyeri to run a residential Secondary School for the Natives. This was materialised when the Sisters took charge of the Sacred Heart Girls' School in Kiganjo.
The seed-foundation of the Apostolic Carmel in Kiganjo, in Nyeri District, took root and gave birth to the establishment of a similar school named Mt. Carmel School in Gathugu in Karatina District, in the year 1993. After a couple of years, the mission expanded to Nairobi, the capital city of Africa. In the year 1995-96 a High School was opened at Buru-Buru through the gernerousity of Cardinal Ottuga of East Africa. This in turn gave rise to yet other institutions - a house of formation and a Primary School called Edel Vale in the neighbouring town in the year 1999-2000.
