Does Grassroots Trust for Community Organizations build houses?

No, Grassroots Trust for Community Organizations does not build houses but has worked tirelessly in the advocacy for effective implementation of the right to adequate and affordable housing for all. How has Grassroots Trust done this? Through lobbying for structures and frameworks that create fertile grounds for adequate and affordable housing. Not only did Grassroots Trust contribute to the Kisumu Housing Policy from its inception to the validation stage but has gone on to ensure that community input is incorporated into National and County matters of housing for example the Housing Fund Regulations. Grassroots Trust has also lobbied for the increase in budgets for housing within National and County budgets. In addition, Grassroots Trust has consistently recommended and advocated for an independent housing fund accessible to the poor and the vulnerable.
