Women Build!

 

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.

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.
