Challenge

The people are evicted from the land they should have occupied legally due to ignorance , illiteracy or poverty. The corrupt local leaders and land officials lease off the land to wealthy land grabbers yet the law gives priority to the squatters found already occupying the land.

Solution

Dorcas foundation sensitises the people, advocates for them and sees them through the land lease process. We pay premium taxes for very poor families who can not afford the rate.

Long-Term Impact

The project will attain land permanence for the people. They will be more productive. Food security will be guaranteed. Violence and mob justice which currently arise from land wrangles will be controlled.
