Women Build is a Habitat for Humanity International program that encourages women to make a difference by building homes and communities. The program seeks to encourage women volunteers to further the home- ‐‑building mission of Habitat for Humanity. Women Build is not about excluding anyone. It is about including women and opening new doors of opportunity.
Spring Women Build- May 7th-10th, 2014
Since Women Build’s official creation in 1998, Women Build volunteers have constructed more than 1,600 homes around the world. In 2009, volunteers helped build an additional 252 Women Build houses.
Decent, affordable housing is a quality of life and basic human dignity issue facing families everywhere. The Women Build program of Habitat for Humanity International has one mission, and that is to empower women to take action against poverty housing conditions.
Women Build brings together women from all walks of life to address in a concrete way the housing crisis facing millions of women and children across the globe. The more people we can train to become effective volunteers, the better equipped we will be to fight poverty housing—and we are training women to do just that.
For a week in September, women will take over our construction sites to help build and rehab new homes, learn construction skills and become advocates of decent, affordable housing for all.
Group day volunteer sponsorships are $1,250 which includes 8 volunteer slots, t-shirts, and lunch on site!
