The Commonwealth Housing Trust alongside the Commonwealth Housing Group Kenya and MWAMKO, a community group, are setting off together on the main stretch of what has already been a long journey.
The MWAMKO families have been very patient and have worked loyally as a group for more than fifteen years, looking forward to building their new homes. Many of the young family members have new skills thanks to training arranged by the project. Now they use them to build their future, with other family members playing their part in various support roles.
The first real progress on the two acres of land bought for the project was installing the water and sewerage infrastructure. Now the foundations of the first five houses have been built and the walls of one house are up to gable height. However there is still a great deal to do.
The construction work is very motivating and very rewarding. Everyone has learned a lot, but we are all very aware that not even one twenty-fifth of the promised houses has been completed. What has been clearly shown, though, is that we have a good plan, we know what we are doing, we are delivering. This is a sound, well-run and sustainable project.
We are inviting other like-minded partners to join us at this point in the road and share the rest of the journey with us. When it is over, the families settled, we hope that in making this model a reality, we will together inspire other such journeys to be taken by those who see the special nature of what we are doing.
If you would like to join us in making the MWAMKO dream a reality, please read on.
