HOME Initiative

Having One and Many Empowered (HOME) Initiative

 

The HOME Initiative – a capacity building program for young slum-community leaders working on housing rights issues. The program is to build a resource pool of young leaders (21–35 years of age) from and within slum communities. The young leaders have been developing a coalition of organisations with a special focus on slum redevelopment and resisting forced evictions at local and regional levels. They have been undertaking need-based projects in their respective intervention cities during the traineeship period. The projects are aimed at serving as models for development interventions, which can be replicated in other places.
