Across cities and major towns in much of the developing world, informal settlements are often synonymous with slums, and refer to settings lacking security of tenure, formal basic services and city infrastructure, and compliance with current planning and building regulations.

These are problems that can be assessed on the criteria of affordability, location, and cultural adequacy.

It is through such lenses that global institutions and international donors expresses hope at the turn of the millenium that by the year 2030, it will be a guarantee of governments and leading players to ensure access for all to adequate, safe and affordable housing and basic services and upgrade of slums.

It is through this background that Kenyan-bred institution, Omoh Homes has a number of programmes that promote access to adequate, safe and affordable housing and basic services.
