The Korogocho Project

From the outset, the Commonwealth Housing Trust project in Korogocho, Nairobi, was conceived as a potential model for supporting people living in slums who wanted to work together to help themselves to secure decent housing which they could afford.

We Have Ground Breaking News - Literally!

The project is entering a new phase. Two acres of land with secure title were bought some time ago, thanks to generous donations, large and small, in response to fundraising appeals by CHT. Then the house design and site layout were  developed and planning permission was granted.

We WON  ?

On Tuesday 6th August CHG will be presented with a cheque for 200,000 Kenyan shillings

Aiming High

On 10th August Aashna Puri and three friends are travelling to Tanzania and will climb Mount Kiliminjaro, Africa's highest mountain.

What Next?

We intend to build a minimum of two houses by the end of the year. If all goes well with fundraising we may be able to build a total of five in the coming months. Watch this page for news of progress.
