    This description of Hany El Miniawy's work was prepared when Hany El Miniawy was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2004.
    Introduction
    Hany is introducing low-cost housing to low-income communities by producing appropriate local building materials, adopting a participatory approach for transfer of know-how, and using simple and fast building techniques. When applied nationally, Hany’s idea will address two of Egypt’s major problems: low-income housing shortages and inhumane living conditions in squatter and illegal areas.
