They inhabit a large portion of Kilifi County, which is to the north of the other Mijikenda peoples. The Giryama mostly practice agriculture and they also trade with other communities.

Work in Giryama began in 1989 and the Giryama New Testament was dedicated on 18th December 2004. The BTL staff in Giryama is in the process of translating the Old Testament.
