An astonishing 47 percent of Egypt’s slums are in Cairo, where 6 million inhabitants are living in a chronically underdeveloped environment. A group of dedicated engineering students is working to create a sustainable housing project, and right now, they are looking for your help to complete the prototype. The efforts are spearheaded by engineer Radwa Roston who, together with a group of international experts, has developed an education and training program called Hand Over. The program’s goal is to teach locals the skills they need to implement rammed earth housing design, a sustainable building option. The program empowers impoverished Egyptians to improve their own lives and communities. The first house is soon to break ground for one family, and the project has a fundraising campaign going on right now to help build houses for even more families. Take peek at the concept after the break and then consider giving the project a hand with a donation.
