Habitat in Kenya

  • Habitat for Humanity Kenya began building houses in 1982.

  • Since then, HFHK has built over 2,900 homes in partnership with families in over 70 local community groups, in seven regions: Bomet, Bungoma, Kisii, Machakos, Maua, Naivasha and Runyenjes.

MaaiMahiu Displaced People Community

  • One group of displaced families, living in tattered tents in the town of Maai Mahiu, used funds provided by the Kenyan government to collectively buy a piece of land, which they subdivided and on which they intend to permanently settle.

  • Habitat Kenya partnered with these 120 families of the Maai Mahiu Displaced Peoples Community—among them Linet Gesare Maroko and Teresia Kwamboka Silal—to build houses, allowing them to move from their tents to sturdy, safe Habitat houses.
