CTT is faced with desperate and urgent requests from different parts of the community on a daily basis. Because of the community based nature of CTT, social responsibility is an integral part of daily activities. Many desperate and urgent requests come through the Centre every day.
The various requests include shelter, clean drinking water, food, clothing and education assistance. Rejected and destitute pregnant mothers and teenagers also frequent the centre.
With support from the Joyce Meyer Ministries more than 500 children have access to two meals daily. Some of the children that come to CTT for assistance show signs of malnourishment, underweight and stunt growth. After a few weeks of highly nutritious food the children show improvement both physically and mentally. Since most of these children are only allowed by their care givers to come to CTT during the week, weekends and holidays present a major food challenge for these vulnerable children. Food security programme that addresses the long term problem of continued food insecurity at household level needs to be put in place urgently. CTT has set up a nutrition garden that enables some of the critical children to take home fruits and vegetables. The children and caregivers are imparted with skills in sustainable agriculture, food processing, indigenous food production, small livestock production as well as bee keeping.
