An invitation to join us in our Korogocho Project
We are working to help a community of 25 families living in great need in one of Nairobi’s worst slums, providing financial support to help them build new homes in a safe environment.
The families have formed a self-help group and contribute their own efforts, abilities and resources to the project.
What has been achieved so far:
two acres of land purchased and ownership registered with the government
house designs and site layout agreed
planning permission granted for 25 houses
25 young family members, formerly unemployed, now trained and have work experience in a range of building skills
they and other family members work on the site in a variety of roles
water supply and sewerage infrastructure have been installed
foundations for the first five houses are complete
walling of the first house is complete to gable level
we are preparing to raise the first roof!
Now we are raising funds to support the construction of all twenty five new homes.
If you would like to join us in building their new homes you can donate now.
CHT is a UK charity, established by the late Clifford Dann in 2004 to provide financial and material assistance for self-build housing projects for people in any of the Commonwealth countries.
