  • Villagers and U.S. Army soldiers work together to construct an eco-dome in Karatbi San, Djibouti, Nov. 30. Upon completion, the dome is slated to be used by the village as a community health clinic or a community school. Civil Affairs Team 4902, 490th Civil Affairs Battalion, assigned to Combined Joint Task Force - Horn of Africa, visited the village Nov. 29 through Dec. 2, to help the villagers build the eco-dome and share skill sets with them so they can continue construction on the dome until the team returns next month.
  • This eco-dome was built at Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, by a civil affairs team a few years ago to see if these buildings are feasible to support communities in the Combined Joint Task Force - Horn of Africa area of responsibility. The eco-dome in Karatbi San, Djibouti, is the first dome CJTF-HOA began building outside Camp Lemonnier to be used by Djiboutians. Though the eco-dome at Karatbi San, Djibouti, is still under construction, upon completion it will stand 21 feet high with a 21-foot diameter main dome and a 15-foot diameter adjoining dome, making it significantly larger than the dome on the camp.
  • A villager shovels dirt into a bucket at the eco-dome construction site in Karabti San, Djibouti, Jan. 3. According to Hamdou Mohamed, Karabti San local and construction foreman, the eco-dome has served as a beacon for the community to rally around and work on together.
  • Villagers and U.S. Army soldiers load dirt into a light armored tactical vehicle at Karatbi San, Djibouti, Nov. 29. The dirt was used to build an eco-dome in the village.
