CTC International prides itself on its "mile deep and inch wide" mentality when approaching community development. We started 10 years ago constructing a school, and we are now the largest employer in a city of 60,000+ people. Our initiatives focus on five specific needs: Education, Environment, Economy, Health and Community. Each area directly impacts the community as a whole and each is interrelated to the success of one another. All CTC initiatives are managed by full-time local Kenyan staff and community volunteers. Follow the links below to get an in-depth look at some of the projects currently in operation in Kenya.
