Sitio Caniba LEAF Project



Kimba Cansojong Homeowners Association Inc. is a member community of HPFPI. They have been informally settling on a 1.3 hectare prime private property in Sition Caniba, Talisay City, Cebu for over 20 years.  In 2015, after learning that the owner was willing to sell them the land at a fair price, the community acted collectively, and through the organising assistance of the HPFPI, sought help from the Philippine Alliance. After a series of discussions and initial research, LinkBuild, jointly with HPFPI and KCHAI, developed a proposal to Reall for a land acquisition and housing project that could be made sustainable through a mixed-income development scheme with a cross-subsidy component.
