Habitat for Humanity Kenya has embarked on a 5-year (2020-2025) business plan that seeks to position the organization as one of the central players in providing Adequate and Affordable (AA) housing for low-income households in Kenya. HFH Kenya’s program focus is evolving from that of direct community intervention to an Integrated Systems Approach to Incremental Housing Processes (ISA2IHP).
The Integrated Systems Approach to Incremental Housing Processes underpins housing as the end product of putting together several elements responsible for supporting the provision of adequate and affordable housing. It considers housing as a long-term, incremental process, which builds on cross-sectorial interventions such as water, sanitation, energy access, land tenure, policy change, and construction at different levels of governance, actors, and regions.
Our housing approach supports the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and relies on partnerships and cooperation with multiple stakeholders, such as communities, local governments, nonprofit organizations, community-based organizations, and the private sector. This approach to housing contributes to the attainment of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 11, – “Making cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable”
Within selected settlements, HFH Kenya undertakes to provide housing construction and training, infrastructures, capacity building, advocating for increased access to land tenure security, and reducing risk and respond to disasters under four broad programmatic areas:
- Financing for owner-led construction
- Settlement-Based Practice
- Evidence-based advocacy for land titling and security of tenure and,
- Disaster Risk Reduction and Response
