Our Vision

Habitat for Humanity Kenya (HFH Kenya) was established in 1982 as a not-for-profit, non-governmental organization (NGO). We are an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI). The affiliation is guided by a National Affiliation Agreement (NAA) and a Memorandum of understanding (MOU).

 

Our Vision:

A nation where every family has a decent place to live.

Our Mission:

Seeking to put God’s love into action, and bringing people together to build homes, communities, and hope.

Our Principles:

  • Demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ.
  • Focus on shelter.
  • Advocate for affordable housing.
  • Promote dignity and hope.
  • Support sustainable and transformative development.

 

Our Strategic Goal

Habitat for Humanity Kenya seeks to be part of the solution to the dire housing situation in Kenya and one of the central players in providing Adequate and Affordable (AA) housing solutions. Our overarching goal is: “Enabling low-income families access decent and affordable shelter.” Since starting operations in 1982, Habitat for Humanity Kenya has worked in 19 counties across the country, enabling low-income families to access decent housing and water, sanitation, and hygiene services.

Our approach has evolved from direct provision of homes to poor and vulnerable families; to providing support and capacity building to households and community level structures as a catalyst for transformation.

 

Going Forward

HFH Kenya is embarking on a 5-year (2020-2025) business plan implementation 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. We intend to focus our interventions on four programmatic areas, namely:

  • Financing for owner-led construction
  • Settlement-based practice 
  • Evidence-based advocacy for security of land tenure.
  • Disaster risk reduction and response.

 

Our target beneficiaries are the low-income populations in rural and peri-urban areas.

Our interventions are currently in five Counties; Homabay, Kisumu, Laikipia, Tana River, and Machakos.
