Our Shelter Rights: Our Struggle

Published on 1 January 2005

Despite a thriving economy, the tranquil city of Mombasa in Kenya suffers from a chronic shortage of decent social housing. This 22-minute short documentary video tells the story of how tenants from Mizizma, Tudor and Changamwe estates in Mombasa formed a joint shelter committee to demand better housing services from their local council. The video has been co-produced by the Institute of Development Studies and the ILISHE Trust, a non-governmental organisation based in Mombasa. Available on video in both PAL and NTSC formats, and also on CD-ROM. Languages: English and Kiswahili versions.
