About me

Grace Chikumo – Mtonga,

HIC President 2024-2028

Grace has worked with a wide range of community based organisations and Non – governmental organisations. She has coordinated lobby and advocacy programmes for housing networks and facilitated linkages with other service providers in an effort to contribute towards equitable access to housing, land and social amenities by the vulnerable and marginalized groups in Zambia. Capacity building to grassroots organisations has been an integral part of the programmes she has been involved, supporting popular processes, aimed at skills building for individuals and organisations. This has empowered vulnerable communities to demand for the realization of their right to housing and land. These experiences come after an impressive academic record in land and housing rights studies.


Her personal objective is to contribute towards the creation of a just society where people have access to secure land tenure, adequate shelter & related services, including improved livelihoods through enhanced financial literacy & interpersonal development skills.
