Build Thirteen Dedication—6 Satltonstall, New Haven

  • On December 2, 2017, Raise the Roof had the special honor of celebrating the dedication of the new home of Abdouh Tchagouni and Zakiya Gafo, and their children, Jalal, Sarah and Idris. Abdouh and Zakiya, with hard work and commitment, made a physical investment of themselves into building their Habitat house. The Raise the Roof community of volunteers and support were honored to partner with, work alongside, and accompany them on their journey to build and own a home. They have a Shoreline community of many forever friends who are happy and excited for them and will always wish them well in their home.

    Here are some links to video of special dedication moments: Abdouh Speaking; Presentation of the Quran by the Rev. Dr. Ginger Brasher-Cunningham; Abdou Chanting.
