To build a flourishing and inclusive community that is positively transforming itself in a secure and well managed environment
We Grow Together
Consultations and negotiations to set up the trust lasted one year – covering all the key issues that stakeholders wanted dealt with.
On 4th January 2019, the communities of Turkana South and Turkana East
marked a landmark achievement, for together with other key stakeholders and actors around the oilfields of Turkana County, they formerly signed the deed setting up Kapese Community Charitable Trust.
Mandate of KCCT
Kapese Community Charitable Trust has two key mandate areas according to Clause 2 of the KCCT trust deed:
As a non-profit and non-political forum to hold the capital and income of the trust fund upon trust. To be involved in and give support in Kenya to charity and particularly the establishment, management, conservation and promotion of the trust area (Turkana County) – Clause 2, section 1.1.
To serve other charitable purposes of public character and directed wholly towards the relief of poverty or distress of the residents of the trust area (Turkana County) and in Kenya and the advancement of their welfare and education and for any other purposes the trustees may from time to time in their absolute discretion think fit whether in Kenya or elsewhere that shall be in alignment with other charitable purposes in the trust deed (Clause 2, section 1.2)
As a key stakeholder, trustee and trustor, Tullow Oil has been steadfast in facilitating the formalization of the trust deed, in which it also undertook to support the Trust to be set up and start its operations. In executing this undertaking, Tullow Trust hired the services of ETC Consulting Ltd, first to build the capacity of the trust, and secondly to support KCCT to develop in a participatory process, a strategic plan to guide its operations for the next five years (2020-2024).
These are the statistics we have achieved.
