What an amazing experience our Chicago Sisterhood of Carpenters team had at the DuPage Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build! Our Sisters were so grateful for the experience and chance to be a part of something so life-changing for these families.
What is Women Build? Habitat for Humanity Women Build program recruits, educates, and encourages women to build and advocate for decent and affordable houses in their communities.
Why Women Build? Womenmake up 50 percent of Habitat for Humanity International’s volunteer force; yet often because of lack of training, they account for less than 15 percent of workers on the construction site.
The Women Build program was established to encourage the involvement of women in the construction of Habitat homes.
