A South African housing construction company, Moladi Housing Technology, has made it to the finals of the prestigious international competition, Hult Global Case Challenge, for providing affordable houses for the poor.
The Port Elizabeth-based company is in the final six in the 2012 Hult Global Case Challenge. One of the judges is former United States President Bill Clinton, whose foundation wants to build millions of houses in Africa.
The company has been building quality, cheap and affordable houses, schools and clinics for 26 years in poor communities around the world. It takes only a day to construct a building using its unique method, which comprises a plastic mould that is simply filled with a mixture of cement, sand, chemicals and water.

Social entrepreneur, Hennie Botes, the inventor and CEO of moladi Construction Technology, has been invited to Moscow, as speaker to present at the 13th NATCON-2013 to be hosted by the Confederation of Real Estate Developers Associations of India (CREDAI), the apex body representing private real estate developers in India
AFFORDABLE HOUSING - Better ways to build: Government is building around 200 000 fully subsidised houses annually. It’s a laudable achievement but not enough to prevent a steady rise in the backlog, which ended 2011 at 2,2m units. Hennie Botes, CEO of alternative building systems firm Moladi, says a shift away from traditional brick and mortar houses would go a long way towards reducing this backlog. “Cementing one brick on top of another is inefficient,” says Botes. “There is also a big shortage of skilled building artisans in SA.”
Moladi utilizes a unique plastic injection molded technology to produce cast in place mortar structures. The process allows unskilled laborers to use indigenous materials to quickly and cheaply construct high standard permanent buildings that are earthquake, cyclone and tsunami resistant. With the intended purpose of , housing the nations, the construction technology addresses four key challenges embodied in the low cost housing shortages facing developing countries, namely: lack of resources, insufficient funds, shortage of skills, and time constraints.

"Dear Mr. Hennie Botes,
Thank you for sharing the World Economic Forum article on Tanzania courthouse construction.
Indeed, under the leadership of the judiciary, the World Bank supported Tanzania Citizen-Centric Judicial Modernization and Justice Service Delivery project is up and running partly because of the quick and speedy launch of the Kibaha courthouse. This courthouse was possible due to fast-track construction Moladi technology and laudable efforts of Mr. Abeid and his construction team.
This experience would be useful to other World Bank projects in Tanzania and beyond.
We would like to see what is a good time and day to have an audio or video conversation to further reflect on this matter. I have had a brief conversation with Mr. Abeid in Dar during the last visit to Tanzania.
Washington DC USA" - 2017
