“I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by conscious endeavor.”
–Henry David Thoreau
Greeted with a big hug on my very first day, I can’t even begin to explain the dynamo that is Zane Wilemon. Visionary, inspirational, down-to-earth…a true servant-leader. Zane began building this incredible empire over 10 years ago with CTC Country Director Jeremiah Kuria, and the spirit of "ubuntu" that he has cultivated is truly alive and well. It was a real treat getting to spend my first few weeks at CTC with the man behind it all; hearing and seeing the vision from the horse’s mouth. While work was rapidly being completed all around, we always were sure to punctuate it with a few good laughs, some big ideas, and a lot of fun. I feel so fulfilled knowing that the projects we were able to accomplish during my time in Maai Mahiu will only help to strengthen this empire and continue to reinforce UBUNTU!
