Radwa Rostom, founder of Handover

Selected as Arabian Business’ 30th most powerful Arab under 40, Radwa Rostom is a civil engineer with a passion for community development who decided to put her skills to action and create prototypes for housing units made solely of earth materials. A training and CSR specialist at the Solar Energy Co. and a member of UNIDO (United Nations Industrial Development Organisation), Rostom created her project after receiving a fellowship from the DO School in Hamburg, Germany. This year, she successfully raised $5,5000 in a crowdfunding project, aiming not only to provide a more humane shelter for slum dwellers in Egypt, but also empower architecture and civil engineering students to design and implement sustainable shelters using the rammed earth technique.
