Women Build is back for 2021! Get ready to empower women to make a difference.
what is Women Build?
Women Build is Habitat for Humanity's unique way of celebrating International Women Week. International Women's Day is recognized on March 8th each year, but we don't think one day is enough! Habitat for Humanity turns a day into a week and we use that entire week to help women encourage each other to build homes, communities, and hope.
why Women Build?
Because why not?! Just kidding (but not really). Habitat believes anyone and everyone can make a difference with a bit of inspiration and hope. We strive to provide a little dash here and there to inspire women everywhere.
who is invited? are there limitations?
Habitat for Humanity will never, ever exclude anyone! We love all gender identities and would love it even more if you joined us for the #BuildHer experience.
