The CTC Ten Foundation was founded in the fall of 2007 to honor the memory of Christopher T. Campbell. Our mission is to promote the education and development of disadvantaged youth through sport. The foundation constructed and maintains a soccer facility and community center in Khayelitsha in the Cape Town area of South Africa.
Now officially branded the CTC Ten Safe Hub, the programs established there provide a positive impact on the lives of the thousands of participants that pass through our gates each year. Christopher, who passed away suddenly at the age of 21, was a collegiate soccer player at Franklin & Marshall College and travel enthusiast with an affection for children and community, making this a fitting tribute to his memory.
In January 2009, we hosted the grand opening of the CTC Ten Safe Hub – the first community turf field in Khayelitsha, Site B, South Africa. Less than a year later, construction was completed on the adjoining clubhouse that houses classroom facilities used for the educational endeavors that support the sports program run at the field.
In 2013 we completed a re-turfing of the facility to help it last for the next generation!
CTC Ten and Amandla work to employ people from the community at the field in a variety of ways.
