In 2000, Habitat for Humanity Waterloo Region hosted the first Women Build in Canada. Since then, this empowering event that strengthens our community has grown.
Women Build Week is an inclusive event; everyone with a desire to build homes and communities is welcome! During the week, volunteers build confidence while learning, having fun, and supporting their neighbours. As a volunteer, you can take pride in the lasting impact of the work you will do.
Educating women is essential to a strong and healthy community. From our first Women Build in 2000, we have been able to create a comfortable learning environment for women with diverse levels of experience. As we learn, we celebrate the skilled women in the trades who have joined us, and we encourage more women to learn trade skills.
In 2020 we are celebrating the history of our Women Build program and working together to empower women to invest, advocate, and take action for a future where everyone has a decent place to live.Gather your friends, your family, your coworkers, or plan to make new friends on the build and join us for Women Build 2020
Your financial support, your voice and your time will help bring strength, stability and independence to families in need of a decent place to live.Donate Today
