Join us on our journey towards creating a caring, safe, inclusive and well-run Khayelitsha, transforming it into a vibrant economic precinct of the future.


The Khayelitsha Community Trust (KCT) is among the most well-established and highly respected community-based infrastructure development NPOs in the Western Cape. Founded in 2003 by the City of Cape Town (CoCT), working collaboratively with trustees, investors and various stakeholders, we have established ourselves as engaged partners in the property and social development of Khayelitsha. We specialise in the development of innovative commercial, residential and community infrastructure. With the signing of the Land Availability Agreement between KCT and the CoCT in 2004, the rights for the development of all undeveloped land within the KBD precinct was allocated to KCT. With a short history of 12 years, we have chartered an amazing journey towards creating a vibrant economic precinct. Our guiding philosophy goes beyond just the development of infrastructure to realising the equitable transformation of Khayelitsha, with its community at the centre, as direct beneficiaries of the improvements and proceeds garnered from our projects.
