Mwito Wa Makao Korogocho

A call for better homes for the people of Korogocho

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 on the outskirts of the city.


The families formed a self-help group several years ago 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

  • house designs and site layout agreed

  • planning permission granted for 25 houses

  • 25 young unemployed family members, received training and work experience in a range of building skills 

  • they and other family members are working on the site

  • they have appropriate professional support


Excellent progress has been made

  • the first five houses will be ready by the end of 2021

  • the first five families will move into their new homes!


Then the second phase of house-building will

  • develop and extend infrastructure across the site

  • identify and incorporate green and sustainable solutions

  • construct the other twenty homes, starting on plots 1-3

If you would like to join us in supporting the families as they build their new homes and  new lives you can donate today



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.
