“As girls we played house…as women we build them.”
What is Women Build?
Women Build is a Habitat for Humanity International program that encourages women to make a difference by building communities through construction and fundraising. Women Build events provide an environment in which women can feel comfortable tackling construction skills they might not otherwise have the opportunity to learn. Through Women Build events, women from all walks of life are working together to build Habitat for Humanity homes across the United States.
Women Build challenges women to actively address the problem of substandard housing and to be part of the solution. Women crews have already built more than 2,000 Habitat for Humanity houses within the United States and dozens of other countries.
What you need to get involved:
It’s simple, the heart, will and desire to make an impact in your community.
