Though our neighborhoods are comprised largely of women and children, they are also the population’s most likely to be affected by poor living conditions. Since 1991, Women Build volunteers from all walks of life have come together to build stronger, safer communities. Our Women Build events provide the opportunity for women to take a proactive step in serving their communities.
For the 11th year, Habitat for Humanity and Lowe’s will host the annual National Women Build Week from May 5-13 where around 18,000 women volunteers and Habitat homeowners will unite nationwide to build up aroundd 300 communities and gain skills in home construction.

Jobs women do – home renovation! Recognising International Women’s Day, more than 30 volunteers took part in a special Women Build version of Project Home Works this Saturday 10 March. 8 female-headed, elderly, low-income individuals or families in Wang Tau Hom Estate and Lok Fu Estate were supported to renovate, repair and clean their homes.
Yes, men are welcome. In fact, the future homeowner may be men. Women Build provides a place for women to learn the skills needed to build a home, but that does not exclude men from participating.
Where can I find a schedule of Women Build events in the future?
