Project Overview

This project, in partnership with NACHU, resettled two communities on a peri urban, and originally farmed area in Eastern Nairobi.

As part of NACHU’s gender mainstreaming strategy, aimed at ensuring women gain equitable access and benefit from urban development, all members chosen from the housing cooperative Ngumo Mbega were women, who previously resided in Mitumba slum. Mitumba residents suffered forced eviction and demolition of their homes in 2011 by the Kenya Ports Authority, and although the Ngumo Mbega members had already been allocated their new land, homes had yet to be built. In response NACHU erected temporary corrugated iron sheet homes, with communal latrines and bathrooms, and these families relocated to the project site early. The temporary homes still exist next to the permanent homes, and are often used to provide extra living space.

The majority of members selected from the Mutindwa cooperative were self-employed market traders aged below 30, and were chosen to improve youth inclusion within housing development. All members resided in temporary shelters prior to the project.

To meet the needs of these communities, commercial plots were included, and are currently being used for urban agriculture. The houses themselves integrated an eco-housing concept with rainwater harvesting and kitchen gardens. They were built incrementally as an initial core bungalow unit of one bedroom, with the option to extend to up to three bedrooms. All clients benefitting from the project were advanced with micro-mortgage loans by NACHU, to be paid back over 8 years.
