U.S. Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class Andrew Young, construction battalion member, discusses the finishing touches of the dome with Hamdou Ahmed, a local villager, and Ismael Abdoulrahman, the Djibouti Joint Civil Affairs Team interpreter Nov. 1, 2012, in Karabti San, Djibouti. As a result of the combined efforts of the villagers, Djiboutian army members and civil affairs team members, the 21-foot-tall eco dome is currently receiving its finishing touches and the villagers now have the skills to build these infrastructures on their own. The project is part of an ongoing effort between CJTF-HOA, villagers, non-government organizations and international organizations over the past several years to provide a community building for Karabti San, a remote village in the Tadjourah region of Djibouti.
