Tippie Students Help Build Habitat for Humanity House

University of Iowa Tippie College of Business students are helping build a house with the Iowa Valley Habitat for Humanity. The home at 2527 Whispering Prairie Ave. will be for Ibrahima and Khadidiatou Diallo and their four children. Ibrahima Diallo is a refugee from Mauritania, a country in northwest Africa. It will be a "green" home with a tankless water heater, 50 percent additional insulation, and dual-tank flush units. The students are also raising $50,000 to help pay for the home. Joyce Berg, a UI accounting professor and faculty advisor, said the students have raised about half that amount.
