International Women's Day

Posted: 2009-03-08 11:05:50

Today, March 8th, we celebrate International Women's Day and kick off National Women's History Month!

What better way to celebrate the achievements of women past, present and future than to take action with Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build program?

What is a Women Build?

Through Women Build Habitat and women partner together to create safe spaces for women to learn, practice, and teach their construction skills as another simple, decent, affordable home is built together with a family in our community. Women Build celebrates the amazing gifts women share and finds new ways to use those gifts to serve our community and God.

Why a Women Build?

  • Habitat's Women Build program challenges women to build a better future for our nation's children and a legacy of volunteerism for their own children.
  • Women can actively address the problem of children in substandard housing and be part of the solution - one house, one family at a time.
  • A Women Build provides a less intimidating environment for women to learn to build homes with families in need.

    Women Build is a celebration of community and God's work through our gifts. It is not about excluding men, but rather it is about encouraging women. Women Build develops new leaders in communities and helps women discover gifts they had never known or never utilized. Women Build celebrates women as together we develop construction skills and help a family in need. We invite you to celebrate and learn with us.
