HOUSING BOARD CHAIRMAN VISITS MADAGASCAR
Following the visit by AFED Chairman Alhaj Shabir bhai Najafi and other Office Bearers to Madagascar in December 2016 to attend the Inauguration of the newly elected Chairman of Conseil Regional of Madagascar (CROI) Alhaj Sheikh Haniphe Akbaraly, AFED Chairman explained his vision for the current term of 2016-2019. This includes women empowerment, Higher Education and Affordable Housing for the Community. He explained that the objective is to build at least 200 units during the current term. The housing needs have been identified in Dar es Salaam, Nairobi, Mombasa and Antananarivo where our main population centres are and the challenges faced by the Community due to exorbitant rents being charged by the Landlords.
Shabir Bhai informed CROI management that the World Federation is aligned with the AFED vision and we shall work with CROI, partnering to build at least 50 units in Antananarivo for the first time middle income buyers.
In the meanwhile, AFED is pleased and appreciates a donation of a plot of approximately 1000 sq. m by Alhaj Navazaly bhai Molu for the Housing Project, where AFED jointly with the World Federation, CROI and other donors intends to construct a building of 50 flats.
