Uganda government launch Reall project

Uganda government launch Reall project

There is a 2.4 million home housing deficit in Uganda. Continuing and rapid urbanisation means owning a home is out of reach for many hard working families.

Transforming the market

Reall are working with Enterprise for Housing Development (EHD) in Lira to build quality and affordable housing for families in the bottom 40% of the income pyramid.

  • Lira has been recognised as a ‘growth city’ where huge urbanisation is expected over coming years
  • Reall’s work with Enterprise for Housing Development (EHD) and The Gwengabara Affordable Housing Project has already delivered mains electricity to the area for the first time
  • EHD is working with the local community to design and build affordable houses for families


The project comprises 33 serviced plots and 4 houses, and has been delivered by EHD in response to the need for quality and affordable housing opportunities for low income Ugandans in cities outside of the Kampala area. Lira has recently been designated as a growth city and is expected to see increased development and urbanisation in the coming years. The presence of the Minister and the Deputy Speaker at the launch event sends a clear message about the importance the Government of Uganda attaches to affordable housing projects for the growing population of Uganda

Government support

EHD hosted the Right Honourable Jacob L’Okori Oulanyah, Deputy Speaker of Parliament and the Honourable Grace Freedom Kwiyukwin, Minister for Northern Uganda, at the launch of the Gwengabara Affordable Housing Project recently.

The attendance of the Deputy Speaker and Minister at the launch sends a clear message of support for the need to build affordable housing in Uganda.

Setting a blueprint

Our work in Lira is a model for investors, housing developers and Governments, that demonstrates the commercial viability of quality, low cost, affordable homes.
