The holiday season is over. But the just ended Christmas and New Year’s holidays will remain etched in the hearts of Kambaa families for a long time to come. This is because the families had one of the most memorable holidays courtesy of the Kigutha Foundation and real estate firm Certified Homes.
The Kigutha Foundation which is owned by popular musician Muigai wa Njoroge joined hands with Certified Homes to provide holiday meals to over 500 families.
This was the second time in less than two weeks that certified Homes was going out to feed the less fortunate in the community. On Christmas day, Certified Homes joined the families in Korogocho slums to mark this year’s Christmas. The organizing of the party by the management and staff of the real estate firm came as a relief for the vulnerable families at Korogocho slums in a year that has been billed as economically depressed.
Apart from providing holiday meals, the developer announced that area residents will be offered training on how to run small businesses as well as small and medium enterprise financing.
“This is not just a corporate outreach, but a reach out to our fellow Kenyans who may not have had as merry a Christmas as other Kenyans,” said philanthropist and Certified Homes managing director Peter Nyaga. “In addition, what we have witnessed here is a need for corporates in the country to join hands and support our fellow less fortunate citizens during this festive season and beyond.”
Certified Homes specializes in the construction of affordable houses. Currently, the developer is offering apartments in Kahawa Sukari dubbed Sukari Heights. The Sukari Heights project is located in the most exclusive Kahawa Sukari neighborhood, which is just 15 minutes drive from the Nairobi Central Business District. The project is also just 20 minutes drive from the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.
In the project, the houses are going for Sh. 2.7 million, with the option of paying in installments. “Studio, 2 and 3 bedrooms plus SQ are going from Sh. 2.7 million. Buyers can make a deposit of Sh. 1.5 million and settle the balance in 24 months,” Nyaga said.
