Women Build and Pink Ribbon Build


Women Build

Women Build is an international Habitat effort to build homes that are funded and constructed by women. Women Build empowers women to take leadership roles in construction and learn new skills while building a home with a hardworking family.

During National Women Build Week (May 2-9, 2015), women are called on to devote their time and treasure to eliminating poverty housing. The event's proximity to Mother’s Day is significant as families with children make up a staggering number of those in need of adequate housing.
