New Habitat Greensboro homeowners, Youssouf Tassaou and Rachida
Manou, are from Niger, Africa.

Youssouf arrived in the United States in 2001 and became a citizen in 2011. Rachida arrived in 2012. They have two beautiful sons. Together, they began their journey to homeownership with Habitat Greensboro in August 2013.

Surprisingly, they chose the lot for their new home without knowing they would have a connection with the house’s co-sponsor. Youssouf’s employer, Endura Products, co-sponsored the house with funds for building materials and volunteer support. Their home in the Village at Northside neighborhood was dedicated in November, 2015. Youssouf’s supervisor spoke highly of him as an employee and a deserving recipient of a Habitat home. Congratulations to Youssouf and Rachida and their boys!
