Huruma is a residential estate located in the northeastern of Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya. To get to Huruma from Nairobi you pass through Kariobangi and Dandora to the East, Moi Airbase and to the south, Mathare to the North and East Leigh to the West. Huruma has a population of 6,569 people who have an average household monthly income of Kshs 5,000 (US $ 62) (Weru, 2004). A study conducted by Pamoja in 2001 showed that though an upgrading of the housing, sanitation and health facilities was vital for Huruma residents, the greater need was for a regularization of tenure for its residents in light of the forced evictions that regularly took place this statistical research was conducted by Pamoja trust an NGO that is based there.

Kenyan based NGOs, Pamoja Trust and the Huruma Project have tried to combat challenges that have resulted due to rural-urban migration in the area by improving the living conditions of the Huruma people in several ways which include: -
1. Developing a consensus among its residents on issues of land and structure entitlements before negotiating with government for land and infrastructure.
2. Establishing community based savings schemes to fund these housing and infrastructure initiatives for example in 2000, Pamoja Trust started its first project in Huruma.
