Chamazi Housing Project

Urban Poverty Fighter

After being evicted from their homes in Kurasini, Rose and her community were living in insecure, makeshift shelters in Chamazi. They urgently needed homes. Rose and her savings group started to save funds to build houses.

In the first phase of the project, 32 houses were constructed using affordable constructions materials made by the community on site.

The community has gained skills and capacity in housing construction – a good thing, as over time, more people have moved to Chamazi and the need for housing has continued to increase.

The community in Chamazi has a lot more houses to build. They need your support to purchase materials and train community members in the necessary construction skills to build durable homes.

You can support Rose and her community by assisting with raw materials, with the training of a community contractor, or by supporting the construction of an entire home for a family.
