The gap between cost of housing and ability to pay is growing.

Access to homes that people can actually pay for is critical. 

Big, BIG challenge

"Every year Uganda’s housing deficit grows by 200,000 units. The majority of the urban population lives in informal settlements. It is a big challenge that requires collective efforts to resolve the situation."

Low cost houses often end up being of low quality
