Check out the latest on National Women Build Day: May 7, 2010: Habitat for Humanity–Ladies Style
The Women Build program helps Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI) build more homes by involving women in building homes and communities. Women represent a tremendous, often untapped, volunteer pool, and Women Build projects provide an opportunity for them to learn construction skills through training opportunities and by working on Women Build houses with crews predominantly comprising women.
Women Build works through Habitat for Humanity affiliates to recruit and train women construction volunteers. Thanks to the high-quality training and hands-on construction experience offered by the Women Build program, Women Build volunteers often become long-term, committed affiliate volunteers. Every week women who have learned their skills through Women Build are found on regular Habitat builds, helping women of modest means to secure safe, decent, affordable housing for their families in communities around the world.
Women Build projects are regularly held by Habitat affiliates across the country. Women at these builds have furthered Habitat’s home-building mission by helping to construct over 1,400 houses. The Women Build program at Habitat for Humanity-MidOhio has built eight homes in Franklin County and is currently building its ninth home.
