Kenya lacks sound legislation on housing and cooperative housing rights and policies. Furthermore, prohibitive interest rates on bank loans for development partnered with consistently poor infrastructure (water, electricity and security) create obstacles for gaining affordable and secure housing.
NACHU aims to advocate for the rights of low and middle income groups so to enhance their access to adequate housing. By using strategic alliances among like-minded initiatives, collaborative activities, the media (including TV, print, Internet and radio) and accessible publicity materials (brochures, videos, information sheets), NACHU can relay its messages to the relevant bodies. Additionally, NACHU trains its members on various subjects so to empower them to engage in local development committees and to address electoral offices. Through training sessions, members are educated on the processes through which they can speak to and influence the government and local officials
