Tatu City’s pillars of corporate social responsibility are Conservation, Community, Health and Education.
Tatu City respects the local population, and throughout the development, they will have access to the area and continue their use of communal assets like water from dams. Over time, the communities around Tatu City will have priority access to jobs and skills training. Tatu City will create tens of thousands of jobs for Kenyans during the project lifetime.
Tatu City has an approved Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) plan which demonstrates its commitment to positive outcomes for the environment. As part of the regulation, Tatu City will maintain over 30% of the land dedicated to green and open space.
Tatu City’s tree nursery was established to grow thousands of indigenous trees, shrubs and flowers that are being used for landscaping within the Tatu City development.
Tatu City is proud to support four government schools which include Tatu Primary School, Ngewe Primary School, Kongo Primary School and Oaklands Primary School, through building repairs, learning materials, uniforms, meals and sports. Tatu City has partnered with the Shamas Rugby Foundation (SRF) and Foundation for Youth Cricket & Education (FYCEK) to provide rugby and cricket sports coaching, combined with life skills, to the students at Tatu Primary and Ngewe Primary Schools. These training’s are conducted during the school timetabled physical education classes during term time and also during school holidays. To date over 900 pupils have been trained in both sports.
Inter-school cricket tournaments have also been arranged, sharpening skills acquired through the training and fostering a competitive spirit among the participants. These initiatives are part of Tatu City’s long-term commitment to improve and develop sports by nurturing talent at the grassroots level.
The local community also benefits from vocational courses offered at the Tatu City Training Academy. To date over 500 individuals have been trained in skills including masonry, plumbing, plastering, steel fixing and security. Upon completion of the course, a large proportion of the graduates are absorbed by the contractors working on the various projects at Tatu City.
