Trust for Indigenous Culture & Health

The Trust for Indigenous Culture and Health (TICAH) was established in Kenya in 2003. Our aim is to promote health. Our focus is on good relationships, healthy households, and community action. We seek to learn from indigenous wisdom wherever we can. We believe beauty is important, our stories matter, and health is a matter of the body, the spirit, and the heart.
