We are committed to the implementation of Article 43 of the Constitution that states that everyone has the right to accessible and adequate housing and to the National Land Policy that affirms that everyone must have access to land.
We address historical and current land injustices in the coastal region of Kenya through public interest litigation and community led advocacy.
Guided by the principles enshrined in those two documents, our current focus is on the following areas:
- Advocate for the repossession, gazettement and titling of illegally possessed fish landing sites in Mombasa County through continuous engagement with Beach Management Units (BMUs) and the National Land Commission (NLC)
- Address historical and current land injustices in the coastal region of Kenya through public interest litigation and community advocacy.
- Interrogate the Mombasa Housing Programme through the courts, media and public forums. We question who will benefit under the banner of “HOUSING FOR WHO”.
- Support artisanal miners to access mining permits in Taita-Taveta and ensure secure and equitable access to land and natural resources in Kenya.
- Conduct research on the status of land ownership in informal settlements to assist and find solutions that protect the interest of marginalized communities guided by the Community Land Act.
