Women Build is Habitat’s volunteer program for women who want to learn construction skills and make a difference by building homes and communities. Women Build provides an environment that encourages women to learn new skills, use new tools and work together as empowered and capable workers. Women Build is not about excluding men—it is about including women. Women Build is a part of Habitat for Humanity International and has helped to build more than 1,900 homes world-wide.
The Women Build event is usually held in early May and brings together women from all around Northern Virginia. Habitat NOVA will host two volunteer build days for Women Build 2015. See Habitat NOVA’s event calendar for more details.
