Master's student Andreas Keller wanted to find an environmentally friendly way to improve people's living conditions in South African shanty-towns. The idea he came up with is the eco-friendly i-Shack - insulated with cardboard, complete with a rainwater harvesting system and solar-powered electricity. Thanks to a grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation there are plans to build 100 more i-Shacks. Al Jazeera's Tania Page reports from Enkanini, Western Cape, South Africa.
