Our Next upcoming Women Build date is January 23, 2018 - Sign up now to ensure your spot.

We all know the incredible power of giving. But did you know women are the driving force behind the construction of Habitat for Humanity homes worldwide? Women Build is a program that gives women the chance to empower themselves and others by fundraising and building homes for Habitat Families. The Women Build program is not about excluding men, but about including women.

Join our Women Build campaign, Power Women Power Tools: an initiative to encourage women to give back to their communities while helping Habitat for Humanity Greater Vancouver build affordable homes. Here's to being truly powerful!

History:

The first Women Build project began in North Carolina in 1991. In 2001, the Canadian Women Build program was formally launched. The program has now completed more than 90 homes in Canada. Today, over 30 countries have participated in this initiative. With thousands of homes under its tool belt, the Women Build program continues to gain momentum, empowering women everywhere to donate their time and resources to create affordable housing for their neighbours in their own backyards.
