Today, one block of six units is nearly complete at the Kawama site and the members have begun to move in.
Plans for a block of thirty units have been drawn up and the ground prepared for construction. Federation members have begun to move into their new homes on the Kawama site.
Members Move Into Their New Homes
Clement Muhwana, who joined the Uganda Slum Dwellers Federation in April 2002, was the first to move into the new homes on the Kawama site. Clement says, “I joined Kawama because I wanted to move from a slum to a better place.”
Whilst showing us around his new house Clement told us, “Right now I’m, so pleased! I’m so pleased. I no longer move about looking for work. I am even working where I am sleeping. I am so pleased and I encourage all my fellow members to have the same spirit and work hard to reach the stage that I have reached.”
