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 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 tanks, tower and a septic tank have been installed

  • the first five houses have roofs, windows and doors


Now we need to complete them, with installation of solar panels, water harvesting and chimneys, as well as plastering, painting and connecting to services


We look forward to the first five families moving in and

  • to developing infrastructure across the site

  • to  construction of the other twenty new homes.

If you would like to join us in building the families' homes and opening up a new future for them 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.
