Shack Dwellers Federation of Namibia (SDFN) is a network of community-led, low-income savings groups working on securing affordable land, shelter and infrastructure services. Namibia Housing Action Group (NHAG) is an NGO that was established to support the work of the SDFN.
The Twin Hills Trust supports the following NHAG / SDFN project:
To allow dwellings in the informal settlement of Usab (Karibib) to install flush toilets, bulk sewer lines needed to be upgraded. The Usab community, supported by the Namibia Housing Action Group (NHAG) and the Shack Dwellers Federation of Namibia (SDFN), are working in partnership with the Karibib Town Council to achieve this upgrade. The upgraded sewer line will benefit over 700 households, consisting of almost 3,000 people.
Twin Hills funding contributed to the costs for breaking surface rock, excavation of trenches and laying of bulk sewer pipes.
