The story
CMS-Africa


CMS-Africa occupied 0.6 of an acre in a prime area of Nairobi. The land had been gifted to CMS-Africa in 2008, from CMS-UK when the land was worth $23,000 USD. Due to the expansion of Nairobi and the boom in the economy the land was worth $17m USD. CMS-Africa already had a vision to build a 16-storey building, so we became the developer and missional partner, being attentive to the needs of the mission. Without fair partnership these organisation are at the mercy of the banks or less scrupulous developers who know the land owner has few choices.

The construction was finished on time and under budget.

Projects


We have over 50 existing relationships with landowners that want us to partner with them to maximise their assets through development. These projects vary from $750,000 USD to $7m USD and have an influence and impact over all of society from primary schools and secondary schools, to churches and university development, from education and training on HIV Aids and protecting street children.

As part of our responsibility we commit to finding apprentices for each project, those who may not otherwise have been given the opportunity to work on such a fair, safe site and be exposed to various levels of involvement on the construction site.
