Challenge

In Wabitosi ,Kibiga 15,000 people of the total population live on public land.They are required by law to lease it from the government. However, due to illiteracy,ignorance or poverty, they remain squatters on this land. Corrupt land officials and local leaders lease such land to wealthy land grabbers who can bribe them. By doing this, they float a section of the land law which gives priority to the people already occupying that land. This leaves these people landless and life is disrupted.

Solution

Dorcas Foundation sensitizes the people, engages the local leaders and the District Land Board, offers legal services and sees them through the land lease process. They also pay premium and other related costs for very poor families and secure land titles for them.

Long-Term Impact

By acquiring land, people can settle down and utilize it to fight poverty,guarantee food security and improve on their lively hood.Land wrangles which commonly result into violence and mob justice wil be controlled
