The mission of Women Build is to recruit, educate and nurture women to build—and advocate for—simple, decent and affordable houses in their communities.
Women Build is not about excluding men, it is about including women. Across the United States, women from all walks of life are working together to build Habitat homes. National Women Build Week challenges women to devote at least one day during the week to eliminate poverty housing. We have chosen May 11 this year, and the goal is to have 80 percent women on the site that day.
Women possess all the capabilities needed to build Habitat homes. In fact, women crews have already built over 1,900 homes. Women Build projects provide an environment in which women can feel comfortable learning skills they might not otherwise have the opportunity to learn.
